Father's Day at the Zoo

The Milwaukee County Zoo is a great place for kids and fathers to spend time together.  Enjoy Father’s Day at the Zoo, Sunday, June 18, as Prairie Farms Dairy sponsors Dad’s special day – all Dads receive free admission, no coupon necessary.

As part of the day’s activities, Prairie Farms Dairy will offer special samplings from
10 a.m. to 2 p.m., while supplies last.

Bactrian camels
Camel dad, Stan, is shown on the far right.

Visit Zoo animal dads like Bactrian camel, Stan, who has two offspring in the Zoo’s Camel Yard.  Stan is father to camel George, born May 22, and marks his second calf; the first offspring was born in early March, and is named Patrick.  Zookeepers want to make sure Stan reacts well to the calf, so the two have remained separate.  Keepers will continue to monitor the situation to decide when an introduction might be appropriate.  When visiting, you’ll see either Stan or Patrick on exhibit in the outdoor yard.

The Zoo is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Father’s Day.  For more information, contact the Zoo’s Marketing and Communications Department at 414.256.5466.
