Sacramento Zoo works to offer candy that is palm-oil free or is manufactured by companies that are members of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil during Boo at the Zoo. The sustainable production of palm oil is crucial to the survival of orangutans; their rain forest habitat is often destroyed to create poorly managed and unsustainable palm oil plantations.

The Zoo is traffic-free and a natural place to have a safe Halloween filled with family-friendly frights and sights. Boo at the Zoo benefits the Sacramento Zoological Society. This event is appropriate for children 10 and under and is held rain or shine. General admission is $10.00 per person; Sacramento Zoo Members admission is $8.00.  Children one and under are admitted free. Tickets may be purchased at the Zoo, call 916-808-5888 for information, or tickets are available online www.saczoo.org.
