How Does Senior Day Support the Detroit Zoological Society (DZS) Mission? 

The DZS is devoted to inspiring our diverse community with engaging, meaningful and memorable experiences and equitable opportunities that encourage the appreciation and stewardship of nature. Senior Day helps to support the community by providing a space to learn about local resources and connect with the animals who call the Detroit Zoo home.
