 The Birmingham Zoo is offering discounted admission to families from out of the state that have evacuated their homes and have come to the Birmingham area because of recent hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Evacuees will receive $3 off of the regularly priced Zoo admission tickets today, Thursday, September 14 through Saturday, September 16. Guests who wish to take advantage of the discounted offer are asked to show the admission staff a valid license from one of the hurricane-affected areas. In addition, the Birmingham Zoo’s partner IBERIABANK is helping sponsor this special offer to those displaced by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
 Attention Zoo Members - mark your calendars for this Sunday from 2-4pm for Members Only Sundaes in the Park! Enjoy seeing the new Henley Park at the Zoo and enjoy free sundaes provided by Mayfield Creamery. We hope you'll join us!
 Take home this original bronze lizard still life sculpture by Frank Fleming, an internationally acclaimed sculptor and local Birmingham artist. This piece stands roughly 19" tall, and 9" wide. Fleming’s work is featured in museums and is highly sought-after by collectors. Birmingham natives might recognize one of his more well-known pieces, the Storyteller Fountain, located at Five Points South. Add this Fleming original to your own art collection today!
 Due to inclement weather, the Zoo will be closed on Monday, September 11 and Tuesday, September 12.
