Pekin robinSee the Milwaukee County Zoo in a different light during the winter months. Take a walk in the brisk air and spot cold-weather animals like moose, polar bear, elk, caribou and snow leopards. To warm up, stroll through the Herb & Nada Mahler Family Aviary and watch the four Pekin robins on exhibit with the Luzon bleeding-heart dove in Tropic 6. You can also check out the red-billed hornbill chicks in the Kopje Exhibit.

Children will love walking through the Small Mammals Building and watching the playful antics of the Zoo's North American river otters, the Goeldi's monkeys, tamarins and nocturnal animals. And remember to check out the big cats in the Florence Mila Borchert Big Cat Country! The jaguar cubs are over a year old and bigger than Mom Stella now.

Before leaving, check out the Fantastic Forest of holiday trees in the U.S. Bank Gathering Place. The trees, donated by Hawks Landscape, and decorated by area youth groups, showcase iconic holiday characters and animal-themed ornaments. There is always something to see at the Milwaukee County Zoo!

Free admission for everyone on this day; Milwaukee County parking fee of $12 still applies.
