This is inline with guidance from the USDA who regulates our facility. Please make sure to maintain 6 feet of distance from other groups and follow any instructions on posted signs.

Sierra Nevada Zoological Park is on a mission to bring top quality educational and enriching experiences to all our visitors. Our mission requires continual support from our community, especially in the winter months when we have fewer visitors. After 30 years of operation we are facing continual costly upgrades and maintenance, that will require your help.
We feed out roughly 160 pounds of meat to our carnivores daily and about the same in fresh produce every day. Specialized supplements for the big cats and primates also add up every month. It is a big job that we love to do, but we cannot do it alone. Every contribution counts.
Can you help us reach our goals?
