KANSAS CITY, Missouri – The Kansas City Zoo has made some changes to its free day program.

Beginning in June, the zoo will kick-off its “Postcard to Adventure” program for residents in Jackson and Clay Counties. The program alters the scheduled free days previously held by the Kansas City Zoo after an incident in March that lead to fights and gunshots in the parking lot.

The program provides more flexibility for residents of the two counties when it is more convenient for them. Beginning in June, every household in Jackson and Clay Counties will receive three free visit opportunities for the remainder of 2014. Each address in the two counties will be randomly sorted into a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday visit. Each ticket received will be valid during one of three months; July, September and November.

To gain free admission, residents will be asked to bring their “Postcard to Adventure” free admission ticket with either photo identification or a recent utility bill. All family members who reside at the address will be admitted into the zoo with the person whose name is on the postcard. The postcard will be mailed to residents in June. For more information on the program, visit www.kansascityzoo.org/postcardtoadventure. The Kansas City Zoo is open from 9:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. during the week and 9:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. on weekends.
