9 am to 4 pm
Join the Sacramento Zoo as we throw a party for the planet! Learn about the environment and conservation both locally and globally and how you can have an impact on the world around you right from home! Enjoy face painting, crafts, hands-on activities and games all focused on the planet we call home. Get the scoop on some of the zoo’s animals and how to make the world a better place for them through keeper chats and wildlife stage shows and be sure to visit the zoo’s backyard to learn about native plants and explore the garden.
Is your teddy bear feeling under the weather? Does your stuffed animal have a cut that needs fixing? We are here to help! As part of the zoo’s Earth Fest celebration, a stuffed animal veterinarian will assess the overall health of your stuffed animal and make a diagnosis based on the symptoms. Donations are gladly accepted and proceeds benefit the zoo’s conservation fund.
A portion of all admission tickets and all proceeds from the carousel on Earth Fest will go towards the zoo’s conservation projects which you can learn more about at the event.
Event is included with general admission into the zoo. Ride Regional Transit to the zoo on Earth Fest and present your ticket for $1 off admission and bring your used laser and inkjet printer cartridges, cell phones & prescription glasses to drop off at the recycling station!
