Some Good News From Zoo Director Gregg Dancho:
As we move to re-open, I want to share with you our plan. The Zoo will open on Monday, June 1. We are implementing a new online ticketing system to welcome everyone back safely and efficiently. The Zoo will be splitting the day into two sessions allowing for up to 500 guests per session. We will open the Zoo at 9 a.m. and will close at noon for cleaning. We will then re-open at 1 p.m. and close at 4 p.m.
We will be requiring all guests to wear a mask. And the more creative the better!
We have created a one-way loop around the Zoo so guests can explore while social distancing. All buildings will be closed to the public; however, guests will be able to pre-order food online from the café and pick it up from our take-out window. Also, the gift shop will be open for online purchases which will be made available for pick up at gift shop kiosk.
Ticket prices will be reduced from $16 to $15 for an adult and from $13 to $10 for a child and a senior and as always children under 3 are free. We will not be able to accept coupons or allow for any partner discount at this time. We also will not be able to rent wheelchairs or strollers.

As we welcome you back under these new circumstances, we appreciate your patience as we look to be able to provide you the best Zoo experience in the safest manner possible.
We ask that you also please continue to check our website www.beardsleyzoo.org
and our Facebook page for the most up-to-date information. We greatly appreciate all your support. We are thrilled have the sights and the sounds of guests back at your Zoo.
And I promise to continue to send you updates.
would like to know what you are thinking. If you have a question, comment or concern please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. As always, I look forward to hearing from you.
Even though we have been continuing to work behind the scenes and even as we continue to provide enrichment every day for our animal residents, nothing is the same without you.
Your Zoo family, both two and four-legged, can’t wait to see you!
