Listen: Lara Kirkendall is the Animal Outreach Manager at Sacramento Zoo Thanks to a generous donation from T-Mobile, the Sacramento Zoo is proud to offer free virtual content for Title 1 schools in the greater Sacramento region.
For a limited time (March through May 2021 only), children in grades K-6 will have the opportunity to learn about conservation and their role in preserving the planet with the help of a fun and educational program designed by Sac Zoo educators. Through animal videos, zookeeper talks, and fun “guest” appearances, students will learn about wildlife conservation and what they can do to help.
Open since 1927, the Sacramento Zoo is home to nearly 500 native, rare and endangered animals and is one of more than 200 accredited institutions of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. The Sacramento Zoo, managed by the nonprofit Sacramento Zoological Society, inspires conservation awareness and action through education and recreation. Daily admission is from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.; zoo grounds are open until 5 p.m. General admission is $19, children ages 2- 11 are $14 and children one and under are admitted free. Currently, all tickets must be reserved and purchased online at www.saczoo.org. For information, call 916-808-5888 or visit saczoo.org.
