Detroit Zoo Offers Free Admission to Military on Veterans Day


ROYAL OAK — The Detroit Zoo is offering free admission to all active and retired military with ID on Monday, Veterans Day, sponsored by the MASCO Corporation Foundation.

“We’re grateful to the men and women who keep our nation safe and thank them for their service,” said Detroit Zoological Society Executive Director Ron Kagan.

As temperatures drop, visitors will find many of the animals more active, including the polar bears, tigers, wolverines, elk and bison. In addition, the red panda twins Meriadoc and Gansu – born in June – may be easier to spot in their habitat.
