Celebrate America’s National Mammal Saturday, November 2 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden is celebrating National Bison Day Saturday, November 2, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Presented locally by Bob Moore Subaru, Zoo guests are invited come together to honor the iconic bison, America’s official National Mammal and the cultural, economic and environmental role it has played in our country’s history – including America’s first successful foray into wildlife conservation. Guests will have an opportunity to learn more about the Zoo’s bison: 18-year-old Mary Ann plus sisters Yarrow and Verbena (both 11 months old) and the collective efforts being taken to preserve these majestic animals and their natural habitats. From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., enjoy animal enrichment activities, information stations, photo opportunities and more–all free with Zoo admission. Plus, November is Military Appreciation Month at the Zoo and guests will have the opportunity to purchase a red, white and blue bison conservation wristband. This limited-edition design is available only during November. Cost is $2 per wristband with all proceeds supporting conservation.
