The real superheroes are the brave men and women that put their lives at risk every day to keep the rest of us safe and protected. The QCA’s very own, Niabi Zoo, would like to thank these hometown superheroes in a big way!

Saturday Sep 9 is Superhero Day at Niabi Zoo! All superheroes (members of the military, police officers, firefighters and EMT’s) will receive free admission! Hours for this Saturday are 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. with the last entry at 4 p.m.

Superhero Day will also present lessons about the conservation heroes at the zoo! You will also find out how many animal adaptations are like superpowers.

Conservation and activity stations will be active from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Head to Niabi Zoo this weekend to celebrate the real superheroes and thank them for their service!
