Detroit Zoo Invites “Wolves” for Free Admission


ROYAL OAK  — As the Detroit Zoo prepares to open its wolf habitat on June 8 and introduce a pair of gray wolves to the zoo, it invites people whose name includes “wolf” or a version thereof to enjoy free admission that day. 

“Just as we are excited to welcome wolves back to the Detroit Zoo for the first time in 25 years, we are also happy to welcome human ‘Wolfs’ to enjoy a free day at the zoo on June 8 in celebration of this beautiful new habitat,” says Ron Kagan, executive director and CEO of the Detroit Zoological Society. 

Anyone who produces valid photo ID verifying that their first, middle, or last name is Wolf (or Wolfe, Wolfson, Wolford, Wulff, Wulfmeier, etc.) is eligible for one free admission to the zoo that day only. Parking, rides, attractions, food, and other additional purchases are not included. 

The Cotton Family Wolf Wilderness, located at the southwest corner of the zoo, is a 2-acre naturalistic habitat that will feature hills and meadows, a variety of trees, a stream and pond, dens, and elevated rock outcroppings.
