FREE Admission at the Lake Superior Zoo Allows You to Understand the Impact, View the Recovery From Last Year’s Devastating Flood

Lake Superior Zoo's Cotton Topped Tamarin

As you travel across the Northland you still see evidence of the flood that caused such extensive damage in our area about a year ago.  For many, it will never be the same, it’s a work in progress to revamp and restore.  That is especially true for our Lake Superior Zoo.  The animals want to use Thursday, June 20th to thank the community and give you a chance to see how far they’ve come in recovery.  It’s a free day and they’re waiting for you and your family.

After the tragic flash flood one year ago the Lake Superior Zoo experienced the love of our community when people from around the region came to help clean and repair the zoo grounds. With tremendous efforts from staff and volunteers the zoo was able to reopen in only one month. Hundreds of people sent donations from around the country and kids from around the region raised funds for the zoo.  Absolutely amazing!

“This is a day set aside to celebrate our community and the overwhelming support the zoo received after the flood,” states Sam Maida, CEO of the Lake Superior Zoo. “People love their zoo and it shows. We are excited to be able to give back to the community with this free day. It’s just one small way we can say thank you for all the incredible support we have received this past year.”

The zoo will be open 10 am-5 pm on Thursday, June 20.  They have lots of activities planned, a special animal enrichment schedule, the Zoo Train will be running and the Safari Café and Tiger’s Paw gift shop will be open.
