ASHEBORO, N.C. — The North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro will be closed Wednesday, Jan. 22 due to the winter weather.

Predictions for Wednesday call for temperatures to remain below freezing with the chance of a rain and snow mixture.

Under those conditions, most animals in the zoo’s African region will remain in off-exhibit holding facilities through the day.

Zoo staff will be asked to report to work as usual.

A decision on Thursday’s operations will be made Wednesday afternoon.

For information on daily operational status, the public can call the zoo’s toll-free number at 1-800-488-0444 or visit the website at
