Brownsville Appreciation Days
As a big thank you to the residents of Brownsville for their constant support, the Gladys Porter Zoo will offer an entire weekend of admission discounts for all residents living inside the Brownsville city limits. From Friday, September 9th through Sunday, September 11th, Brownsville residents will be able to visit the Zoo for the special admission price of only $2.00. As an added bonus, the Urban Science Initiative, Inc. will be hosting Oceanarium in the Special Events building on Saturday, September 10th from noon to 4:00 p.m. The event is an additional $1.00 with paid admission or Zoo membership. It promises to be a day filled with fun!
The Oceanarium is an educational event that provides unique opportunities for students, parents, teachers, and others to engage in ocean science. This event will feature contact with working scientists, oceanographers, meteorologists, marine biologists and others who are deeply involved in science. Visitors at Oceanarium will be able to enjoy hands-on activities that are both educational and fun!
We hope Brownsville residents take advantage of this wonderful opportunity. In order to receive the discounted admission price, at least one family member must show proof of residency. Identification such as a driver’s license, utility receipt or school ID will suffice.
