    SAN FRANCISCO - MAY 18: A Sumatran tiger, an endangered animal species, sits in its exhibit at the San Francisco Zoo May 18, 2007 in San Francisco, California.

    Officials with the San Francisco Zoo are launching "Good Neighbor Free Days" on Thursdays in September for residents from nine Bay Area counties in celebration of the zoo's 90th anniversary.

    Each week, visitors from a certain county will get free admission.

    This Thursday, Sept. 5, residents of Santa Clara and San Mateo counties can visit for free. On Sept. 12, residents of San Francisco can visit for free. On Sept. 19, admission is free for residents of Alameda and Contra Costa counties and on Sept. 26, there is no cost for admission for residents of Marin, Napa, Sonoma and Solano counties.
