The time to meet up is at 7:45am. I drive a silver Hyundai Sonata. Two members have expressed interest in traveling with me so I will have one seat available. Depending on how the day goes, a dinner stop may be made on the way back. Possible quick rest stop on the way there.

Heather is also going to be a driver, but she plans on spending the whole day (and possibly most of the night) in Philly.

The cost is $23 for each adult ticket. Parking is $16 and you may pay for your zoo admission and parking online. The address is 3400 W Girard Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19104.

Things to bring – camera gear, water, ticket, $, snacks. If you have any questions, please email me at csperko@comcast.net or call me at 717-330-8325. If I don’t answer the phone, please leave a message.
