You Too Can Do The Zoo! Friday, September 28th

WHEN: 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
Join us for the 7th annual "You Too Can Do The Zoo" at Knoxville Zoo. This event is designed for individuals with disabilities to enjoy the zoo for FREE. Admission and ticket sales stop one hour before the zoo closes.

"You Too Can Do The Zoo" was created in 2000 in an effort to promote the re-designed entrance to Knoxville Zoo, which is much more accessible and user-friendly for the disabled than the old entrance. Kids Cove, added in April 2005, is another addition that makes Knoxville Zoo a great place to visit.

People with disabilities will receive:

* Free parking (with a disabled parking tag or license plate)
* Free admission
* Sign language interpreter throughout various locations in the Zoo. This service is provided by Knoxville Center for the Deaf.
* Zoo staff and volunteers share animal information
* Educational presentations
* Manual and electric wheelchairs available for rent as available

Also, special Bird Show times throughout the day, so come by & see me.

BIRD SHOWS: 11:30, 12:30
