The Toledo Zoo's Senior Discovery Days are an ideal way for folks 60 and over to reconnect with the zoo.
Each Tuesday during Senior Discovery Days, the zoo offers free admission for people 60 and over. There are also live performances, guided tours and classic movies planned. The schedule for Tuesdays in October is as follows:
On Oct. 6, the zoo presents the movie Africa Screams, starring Abbott and Costello. The 1949 comedy begins at 10:30 a.m. in the zoo's indoor theatre, located in the Museum of Science.
The big band sounds of Jeff McDonald's Big Band Revival Orchestra can be heard on Oct. 13 in the Nairobi Pavilion. They'll perform from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., and light refreshments will be served.
The zoo's award-winning Aviary will be in the spotlight on Oct. 20 with a guided tour at 11 a.m. Dedicated in 1937, the aviary received an impressive renovation in 1998. It features three distinct walk-through habitats - the African Grasslands, Sonoran Desert and Australian Outback.
Also among perks offered to seniors are free coffee and a mini-muffin each weekday in the Timberline Bakery.
