Zoo Guests Get Discount for Helping with Summer Cereal Drive

The Little Rock Zoo is partnering with THV for its Summer Cereal Drive and will be offering $2 off admission for visitors who donate a box of cereal now through June 22.

The discount will apply to any Zoo admission. Children under the age of 2 are admitted free. Guests can donate an unlimited number of boxes.

The goal of this year’s drive is half a million boxes of cereal, which will help provide breakfast for Central Arkansas children and families in need for an entire year.

For 16 years, the Summer Cereal Drive has been providing non-perishable breakfast items for children and families in Central Arkansas, for a total of 2.4 million items. Individuals and organizations alike can donate to the cause. More information can be found at

The Zoo is open every day of the week from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. during the summer, closing 30 minutes after the last admission. Admission is $12.95 for adults, $9.95 for children ages 2 - 12, and free for children ages 2 and under.
