Higher ticket prices at Potawatomi Zoo will help keep South Bend's Greenhouse and Conservatories open.
Monday, the South Bend Board of Park Commissioners approved a $1 ticket increase for the zoo.
The money will be used to subsidize operating costs for the greenhouse.
This means starting January 2nd, zoo tickets will be $7 dollars for adults and $5 dollars for children.
The conservatory will also raise its admission price from $1 dollar to $3 dollars.
From now on, if you buy a zoo ticket, admission to the conservatory will also be included.
The board unanimously approved the ticket increases.
