The event is free with Zoo admission: $18 adults, $13 seniors aged 65 and up, $11 children 2-12. Weekend parking is $11. For more info, visit www.sbzoo.org.

The Santa Barbara Zoo is accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) whose accredited members are helping to preserve thousands of animals regionally and around the world through unequaled wildlife conservation programs. Visit www.sbzoo.org.
