The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium is honoring those who educate our community by offering free admission to all current and retired education personnel and their immediate family (up to five guests). Educator Appreciation Days will be held December 29-31 from 10 a.m. until the close of Wildlights.
In order to receive free admission, proof of being a certified educator must be shown at the Zoo’s ticket window. Acceptable forms of proof include OEA card, teaching license/certificate, pay stub or a letter from your school district indicating intent to home school. Personnel who qualify for Educator Appreciation Days include certified public/private PreK-12th grade school teachers, teachers at licensed/registered child care and preschool facilities, college/university faculty, and home educators with identification.
*The number of tickets are limited due to COVID-19 protocols, and advance ticket pick up is available, strongly encouraged, and the only way to guarantee entrance. Tickets are available now at the Will Call window at the Zoo. Parking paid on the day of ticket pick up will be credited to your future visit. Parking is $10 per vehicle. Thank you for all you do for our community! Event Page: https://bit.ly/2I5c6rE
