Lions, Tigers and... Orangutans?

If you are a mom, it is likely that one of your favorite things to do is get together with other moms to chat about your little ones. University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital is partnering with the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo to introduce you to a few other moms.

The only unusual thing? These moms are from the animal kingdom.

On May 13, join us for Mother’s Day at the Zoo. From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., we will offer special activities, giveaways and more. You will get to learn about some very special animal mothers, including monkeys, tigers and African elephants. You can learn about the animal moms, their parenting techniques and how they interact with their little ones. While you are touring the zoo, educational interpreters will be on hand to answer questions and teach you more about the animals.

Special for our Facebook friends: Visit us at the Zoo and show us, on your phone, that you “like” us on Facebook to receive a FREE gift!

Make some new animal friends

Moms pay half-price for zoo entry on the day of the event. Join us! Just visit or call the Zoo at 216-661-6500 for more information.
