[ARCHIVED] Idaho Falls Zoo Announces Last Day for 2021 Season

Cody Bray Peacock

Your Idaho Falls Zoo’s last day of the 2021 season will be Sunday, November 28. 

For the first time ever, the zoo extended its season through November and is currently open on Saturdays and Sundays from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (weather permitting).

“This was an experiment to see if the public would still be interested in visiting the zoo as the weather grew colder,” says Zoo Director David Pennock. “We’re very happy to report zoo guests indeed supported an extended season and we thank our community for doing so.”

You have two weekends left in 2021 to visit the zoo, and we’re even offering a special rate.  Admission is only $5 for adults (13-61), $4 for seniors (62+), $3 for kids (3-12), and only $0.50 for ages two and under. Memberships and guest tickets are also welcome.

If you’ve got family in town for Thanksgiving, bring them to the zoo and help us end the 2021 season on a high note! 

For more information on fall at the zoo and zoo events, tickets prices, and zoo happenings visit Idaho Falls Zoo’s website, and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube.
