Hogle Zoo has reduced its admission fees 50 percent through Jan. 30, zoo officials announced Monday.

Adult admission fees are now $2, or $1 for children 5 through 14. Children under 5 will be admitted without charge."The zoo is saying thanks and happy holidays to our supporters by reducing admissions during holiday vacations," said zoo director LaMar Farnsworth. "In fact, we think parents will be grateful for an economical diversion - particularly at this time of the year."

The zoo is open from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. every day of the year except Christmas and New Year's Day.
