Spend a Saturday Beautifying the Zoo
We now have Renew the Zoo workdays on a quarterly basis in March, June, September and December. Note: Registration is online only and pre-registration is required. Register early; we always fill up.
The role of the Zoo's horticulture department is more than just to create beautiful gardens for the animals and visitors; it is also to help spread the message of habitat conservation and vegetation management.
DetailsWhen: The second Saturday of March, June, September and December: 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Please be prompt. We will be closing the gates at 8:15. No late entries allowed.
Where: Meet by the old entrance gate on Sloat Blvd. and 45th Ave.
Wear: Something warm and comfortable that you don't mind getting dirty. We provide tools and work gloves, but if you have work gloves, bring them just in case. Please wear sturdy work shoes.
Who: Children are encouraged, but must be accompanied by an adult (1 adult per 5 minors)
Pre-registration is required; online registration only. To ensure that everyone has a full work experience, we will be capping the registration at 200 for each workday. We require individual registration. Families can register as a group. When you register, you will receive an email confirmation. Please do not attend unless your registration has been confirmed. Please print and bring your emailed registration to the event. Questions? Email RenewtheZoo@sfzoo.org
