Ringo, a 38-year-old harbor seal

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 19, 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 be offering special samplings from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., while supplies last.

Father's Day at the ZooVisit animal dads at the Zoo like Ringo, a 38-year-old harbor seal. Ringo sired his first pup at the ripe old age (for a harbor seal) of 35. A year later, he sired another pup named Siku. Zookeepers report Ringo and his mate, Sydney, are expecting a third offspring any day now! Whatever age your father might be, bring him to the Zoo on June 19 to visit Ringo and other animal dads. All fathers receive free admission!

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.
