Sunday, August 27th the Oregon Zoo, in cooperation with Allstate Foundation, is giving out backpacks filled with school supplies. No zoo entrance required.
The give-a-way takes place outside the zoo’s Education Center, just down the hill from the main zoo entrance. Follow the Allstate “Pack to School” signs, or ask any Allstate agent or zoo staff member for directions (Do not enter the zoo through the main gate!)
For event participants, the zoo is offering a reduced admission of $5 per person. If you take MAX, show your transit ticket to receive an additional $1.50 discount. Also, there is one free youth admission ticket in the backpack.
