Back to School Weekend

17-Aug-2013 - 18-Aug-2013

It's time to go back to school! To prepare our youngest visitors (and their parents) for the inevitable end of summer, we're having a special promotion. On August 17 and 18, the first 500 kids to enter the Zoo will receive a special SF Zoo drawstring backpack filled with fun animal-themed school supplies like pencils, paper and bookmarks. And to get those young minds back in shape for the classroom, the Zoo will be filled with fun educational opportunities. Join us to celebrate the end of summer and get in gear for back to school.
