Earth Fest

*Including a Stuffed Animal Clinic
Saturday, April 21, 2018

9 am to 4 pm

Join the Sacramento Zoo as we throw a party for the planet including a Stuffed Animal Clinic! 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.

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. Bring your used laser and inkjet printer cartridges, cell phones and prescription glasses to drop off at the recycling station!

Stuffed Animal Clinic

Is your teddy bear feeling under the weather? Does your stuffed animal have a cut that needs fixing? We are here to help! A stuffed animal veterinarian will assess the overall health of your stuffed animal, make a diagnosis based on the symptoms, and sew up any tears. At the end of the exam your friend will receive a certificate of health.

Forgot your teddy bear at home? Stuffed animals will be available for adoption.
