International Red Panda Day
Celebrate everything Red Panda – for FREE!
Enjoy a free day of fun at Sequoia Park Zoo, thanks to the generous sponsorship of the Times-Standard, while celebrating International Red Panda Day! There will be Red panda-themed activities around every corner, and the opportunity to catch up on our Red panda family – Stella Luna, Sumo, and their two babies – as well as all the other exciting new happenings at the zoo.
Additionally, there will be keeper talks, opportunities to watch the Red pandas create some of their unique paw-print paintings, and the chance to enter a raffle and win great prizes! All the proceeds from raffle ticket sales and face painting donations will go directly to the Red Panda Network to support Red Panda conservation in the wild.
