Horticultural Day at Houston Zoo

If a day trip to Houston sounds like a good idea, you might consider dropping in at the Houston Zoo Saturday, Oct. 10 for a 2-hour guided tour of the zoo's 55 acres of tropical and native plants, trees, flowers and ground covers. The zoo's horticulture Manager, Joe Williams, will lead the tour. In an inspired move, the zoo will open its gates 90 minutes early at 7:30 a.m. which means you can tour it during cooler hours. According to a press release, each year the Houston Zoo’s team of 12 horticulture professionals spend than 20,000 hours taking care of the plants. Tickets are - Member $25; Non-Member $30; Child/Student/ Senior Member $15; Child/Student/Senior non-Member $20. Admission includes a continental breakfast and all-day access to the Zoo.
