Seize the deal at the Zoo

Don’t let holiday shopping overwhelm you: The Seneca Park Zoo is here to inspire you with some holiday gift ideas:

Find that perfect something at the ZooShop. Plush animals, adult and children’s apparel, purses, jewelry, books and toys, ornaments and more. Save 15% at checkout when you shop on Black Friday (Nov. 28) and Small Business Saturday (Nov. 29). Looking for something for Mom? Your little nephew? A coworker? Here are some gift suggestions:

Membership gift certificates: A terrific value that pays for itself in just a few visits. Take $10 off when you purchase through December 31, 2014.

2015 Zoo Calendars: Photos from local photographers, conservation messages about our animals and their wild relatives, marked Zoo events and large squares to record your own important dates – it’s the perfect gift! Available for $12.95 at Wegmans as well as at the ZooShop. SPZ members may purchase for $9.95 at the ZooShop.

ZooParent Adoptions: What do you get the mammal who has everything? Adopt a favorite animal in their name and help support this important animal enrichment program. Adopt a Mexican wolf at any level through December 31, 2014 and receive an adorable plush wolf and gift box.

Buy a Brick: Bricks are a lasting tribute placed in three locations within the Zoo. They can be imprinted with a message, memorial, logo, or to simply honor a friend, family member, employee or pet.

And while you’re at the ZooShop, help local families in need by purchasing a book, clothing item or toy to donate to Toys for Tots. We’ll be collecting items at the ZooShop through December 17, 2014.

With so many creative gift ideas, you can’t go wrong with a gift from the Zoo. Shop Small with us this weekend and support your Zoo!
