Conservation Relaxation

Every Thursday evening through August 13 is Sip & Stroll at the Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden.

Six “watering holes” throughout the park include beverages inspired by animals around the world, as well as information on the zoo’s global conservation partnerships. Pre-purchase a drinks passport to enjoy all of the cocktails or purchase them, along with a selection of beers, wines, mixed drinks, sodas, and water, individually. July 2. Tickets, $17-$44. okczoo.org
