    - The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. Our Task Force is a privately funded organization whose purpose is to encourage participation on the National Day of Prayer. It exists to communicate with every individual the need for personal repentance and prayer, to create appropriate materials, and to mobilize the Christian community to intercede for America’s leaders and its families. The Task Force represents a Judeo-Christian expression of the national observance, based on our understanding that this country was birthed in prayer and in reverence for the God of the Bible.

  • - Mother's Day Weekend ​May 7-8

    Celebrate your Mom with Ours! Thousands of Moms joined us to celebrate Mother's Day Weekend last year and we want to spotlight all our mothers — both human and animal — again this year during our fun, annual event. ​This year's theme: floral!​
    The recognition begins right as you enter the Zoo with a special "Proud Mom" sticker. The fun is just beginning as the whole family participates in the Zoo-wide scavenger hunt. Follow the clues to discover several Zoo mothers and interesting animal facts along the way. For example, did you know that a mother elephant carries her calf for 22 months? Or that the whole group, or pod, of dolphins help to raise young dolphins? Once you finish the exciting hunt, stop over at the White River Gardens Gift shop to receive a special gift!
    To remember your special day, there will be tasty treats and a Mother's Day photo opportunity located along the main pathway. Special Mother's Day coloring sheets can be found to the side for your little ones to decorate for you, too!

    Are you a brand new mom? Don't forget to check out the Nursing Mom's Nest presented by Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health while you're here. Located in Flights of Fancy, this private space offers a place for moms to care for and breastfeed their babies.

    Mother's Day weekend activities are free for Zoo members and included with regular Zoo admission.
