Conservation Events

Sequoia Park Zoo hosts events throughout the year where community members can learn about the earth and all of its wild inhabitants. These events engage guests in conservation activities while connecting with wildlife at the zoo.

In spring, our Earth Day event offers a wide array of environmental activities and hosts environmental organizations from around the community who showcase their work with fun educational games and hands-on learning activities. Later in the year, we celebrate International Red Panda Day with panda-themed activities, keeper talks, and offer ways for visitors to help protect this species in the wild.

During the fall and winter months, we invite you to join us in the evening for a conservation lecture to learn more about species conservation efforts in the field. These talks are free and open to the public. The monthly lectures typically run November through February on the 2nd Wednesday of the month (dates subject to change). A reception with refreshments is held a half hour before the lecture begins. Visit the calendar to learn more about upcoming lectures and topics.

Proceeds raised during conservation events go directly toward the Zoo’s Conservation Fund, or to select conservation organizations such as Red Panda Network.
