The Community Access Program (CAP) is the Zoo’s commitment to providing free admission to eligible Title 1 school children, as well as to community groups and 501 (c) (3) organizations whose mission and organizational goals support exploration and education of children and families in the region. The Zoo is committed to a goal of at least 5 percent of total admission coming through this programs—in a typical year, this results in at least 60,000 free admissions to the Zoo.
The Community Access Program is one facet of the Zoo’s initiatives to strengthen our role as a community resource and to create future generations of environmental stewards.
