    Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden

Flutter into a summer of reading fun and togetherness with the bonus to visit the OKC Zoo for free! The Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden, together with OG&E, are proud to launch this season of Read for Adventure, a statewide library program that inspires Oklahoma families take time for reading and appreciating nature in a unique way. The program’s feature book, Juniper’s Butterfly Garden, coveys the story of a child’s discovery of monarch butterflies and why it’s important to protect them. Monarchs migrate annually through Oklahoma on their journey from central Mexico to southern Canada and both the OKC Zoo and OG&E are committed to conserving vital habitats that benefit all pollinators. The Read for Adventure program is aimed at promoting literacy statewide and invites library card holders to check out Juniper’s Butterfly Garden, from any participating public and tribal library location within the state, to receive a voucher redeemable for FREE general admission to the OKC Zoo for up to four people (child, adult or senior). Vouchers expire June 30, 2024. For a list of participating libraries, visit www.okczoo.org/readforadventure.
