Fresno, CA (KFSN)-More people will soon have the opportunity to visit Fresno Chaffee Zoo for free this summer.

Starting next month, thousands of children and their families will have the opportunity to experience animals, thanks to a donation from the Mayor’s One Fresno Foundation.

Mayor Jerry Dyer has announced that “One Fresno Zoo Days” will be back after the success of last year’s debut.

“Our goal is to provide young people with the opportunity to create special memories, and they will be able to do that here,” Dier said.

City leaders will expand the program from 9,000 to 10,000 this year and distribute it to underserved young people and their families through various social services agencies and community-based organizations.

Free tickets and parking are available on the days of the week from June 7th to August 9th.

The zoo’s director and CEO said: John Forest Dorin.

Dorin believes that the partnership with this city has the potential to have an eternal impact.

“Being outdoors, being in a natural environment, and having a zoo in a natural environment is beneficial to the health and future of children. Therefore, even a small percentage of these children will have their own future and their future. The future of our community is worth all the tickets we give out. “

The program was made possible by a $ 10,000 donation from the Mayor’s One Fresno Foundation, with an additional $ 25,000 donated by a local bank.
