We will meet inside the zoo just outside of Wynn’s.
Free Admission for Collier Residents!
$20 for non-residents.
(Of course donations are recommended.)
On the first Saturday of every month, 12 times a year, Collier County residents ONLY receive free zoo admission all day long until 4 p.m. - proof of residency required for adults. Visitors under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult at least 18 years of age. http://www.napleszoo.com/Collier/index.htm
Wear sunglasses, sun screen, light weight clothes and comfortable shoes. Bring a camera and cash for food and unique items from the gift shop.
Coolers and picnic lunches are welcome. Beer and wine are available at Wynn's at the Zoo, but guests are not permitted to bring in alcoholic beverages. For the safety of the animals, plastic lids and straws are not allowed in the zoo.
Let’s visit the bears and the lions on the north end of the park first as by midday the animals are often warm and lethargic. Then we will monkey around to the free primate cruise on the east end of the zoo, as that fills up quickly. Location is on the zoo map at top of page.
Animal shows are at various times and we can break up into smaller groups after the cruise based on who would like to see what show.
Remember to enjoy the beautiful horticulture specimens throughout the grounds.
Additional contact information will be given to RSVPs the evening beforehand.
