College Day 

All college students get free admission to the zoo with a valid student identification card! (including any children of the student).

Don’t miss the exciting enrichment event on the same day! Between 1 and 3 p.m. the animals will be having a pre-celebration to kick off the excitement of the BIG game between the Michigan State Spartans and the University of Michigan Wolverines. The animals will be making their prediction on the outcomes of the game, based on their enrichment choices.

Show your team spirit by wearing your team colors.


-ALSO on October 6! – 


Tailgate with the Animals 

This isn’t your typical tailgate. It’s the Zoo’s animals receiving football-themed treats and making choices that will “predict“ the outcome of the BIG Michigan vs. Michigan State football game. Wear your team’s colors and catch the fun from 1 – 3 p.m.!

Animal Enrichment Events are the best time to see the animals being active. This event is included with regular admission price.

College students: Don’t forget to show your valid college student ID for FREE admission to Potter Park Zoo from 9 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, October 6.
