Inclusion Day

Wear orange to the Akron Zoo and receive free admission for the day! March is National Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month, and to kick off the month the Akron Zoo is partnering with Summit County Developmental Disabilities Board in celebrating people of all abilities.

On Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., visit the Summit DD Developmental Specialists in Komodo Kingdom for free developmental screenings for children from birth to age three, sensory activities and a fun photo-op!

Share your photos of you wearing orange at the zoo on social media using #includeME #akronzooinclusion.
