Show mom a wild time on Mother’s Day at the Zoo

Celebrate with a gourmet brunch, animals and more

FORT WORTH, Texas – Treat Mom and the rest of the family to a Mother’s Day celebration at the Fort Worth Zoo! The Zoo is offering brunch at 9 and 11:30 a.m. on Sunday, May 8, 2011, which includes made-to-order omelets and waffles, fresh fruit and more inside the Zoo’s Portraits of The Wild Art Gallery.

In addition to brunch, you and your family will enjoy a Wild Wonders animal meet-and-greet, entry into the Zoo on Mother’s Day, and keeper chats at select exhibits.

An Adoption package for the animal of your choice also includes:

• Personalized adoption certificate
• Animal fact sheet

The nationally acclaimed Fort Worth Zoo has been ranked the No. 5 zoo in the nation by USA Travel Guide and the No. 1 attraction in the DFW Metroplex by Zagat survey. The Zoo is home to more than 500 animal species and a world-famous reptile collection, housed in the brand new Museum of Living Art (MOLA). The institution’s focus on education and conservation is second to none, enhancing the lives of more than 1 million visitors a year.
