Toucan Tuesdays: Pay 2-for-1 Admission on Toucan Tuesdays at Riverbanks Zoo

Pay Two-for-One Admission with the Return of Toucan Tuesdays at Riverbanks Zoo  in Columbia. S.C. starting June 12 2012

Every Tuesday this summer, beginning on June 12, two can visit Riverbanks for the price of one with a donation of two cans of non-perishable food to Harvest Hope. Toucan Tuesdays—a partnership with Harvest Hope Food Bank to help feed hungry families in the Midlands.

Riverbanks visitors generated nearly 2,000 pounds of food during last year’s Toucan Tuesdays drive.

Buy-one, get-one admission isn’t the only perk guests will receive for visiting on a Toucan Tuesday. Riverbanks will also offer $2 ICEEs and 2-for-1 specials in the Elephant’s Trunk Gift Shop.

In addition, visiting on a Toucan Tuesday is a perfect opportunity to check out the Zoo’s newest pair of residents—Riverbanks’ Komodo dragons. The juvenile dragons, born last August, are now on exhibit in the Desert Gallery of the Aquarium-Reptile Complex.

Toucan Tuesdays will run for 12 consecutive Tuesdays throughout the summer, ending on August 28. The promotion applies to general admission rates only (purchase one admission and get the second for equal or lesser value free; Explorer wristbands and memberships are not included). Donation bins will be located at both the Zoo and Garden entrances.

When visiting Riverbanks, be sure to also check out EdVenture Children’s Museum in Columbia, S.C.
