Free day at the zoo

One year after the flood forced the Lake Superior Zoo to close for a month, the zoo will offer free admission Thursday.

“This is a day set aside to celebrate our community and the overwhelming support the zoo received at the flood,” CEO Sam Maida said in a news release.

The zoo will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. that day.
