It’s supposed to be more than 92-degrees outside today.  Great!  That means admission to Jacksonville Zoo & Gardens is half price.  Just go to the Zoo website at, click on the 92-degrees promotion button and print one of the half-price coupons.  Be sure you select the coupon for the day you want to go to the zoo–the coupons are date-specific.
