Red Diamond Coffee & Tea will make tickets available for free admission to the Birmingham Zoo through a redeemable code on specially marked packages of Red Diamond coffee.
“Red Diamond has been shared by families for over 108 years,’ said Dave Burke, Red Diamond Coffee & Tea executive vice president. “The Birmingham Zoo provides a chance for families to share precious moments together, and we hope many thousands will take advantage of free admission to this very special place.”
Dr. William Foster, Birmingham Zoo president and chief executive officer, said the zoo and Red Diamond have been partners for many years.
“We are among the most visited places in all of Alabama for a reason–people leave here happy. With Red Diamond, you can come out to 1 Wild Place with your family, for free,” Foster said.
The Birmingham Zoo draws more than 500,000 visitors annually. Approximately 950 animals of 230 species, including sea lions, rhinos and endangered species from six continents, call the 122-acre zoo home.
Zoo attractions include the Red Diamond Express train ride and the Red Diamond Sea Lion Splash exhibit.
