You are cordially invited to come experience the “Guarding of the Rings” by Shasta on Friday, December 8, at The Houston Zoo. A box that will hold your ring will be inside the habitat from 9:00am – 3:30pm. The Zoo will be open to the public from 9 A.M. – 4 P.M. A keeper chat about the cougars will occur at 11:30 am on December 8th, too! Tickets for December will be available on October 16th for non-members. Tickets MUST be reserved online before visiting the Zoo, as tickets will not be sold at the gate. Current UH students receive FREE admission by reserving tickets online and presenting their UH ID upon entry, along with your reservation ticket. To apply the student discount, scroll down to the section “Discount Admission” and select the “College Student” option. Make sure to reserve yours early! Members are no longer required to make a reservation to visit the Zoo. Upon arrival at the Zoo, you will enter through our Member Entrance and present your digital membership card.
