Visit the Zoo in December and enjoy holiday decor and photo opps while visiting your favorite animals. Seasonal treats and adults-only holiday spirits are available for purchase, and photos with Santa will be available for purchase on scheduled dates throughout the month.
The Australian Walkabout welcomes you into the animals’ home, a 15,000-square-foot walkable exhibit space. Its natural design evokes a sense of open space and encourages a connection with nature. The immersive layout honors the land, animals, and traditions of the Australian Aboriginal culture. You’ll see kangaroos, emus, and wallabies up close and experience the thrill of seeing these animals like never before!
The Santa Barbara Public Library’s library outreach van will be at the Zoo's hilltop today. Zoo guests can get a library card, browse and check out materials, return materials, and more while enjoying live music. If there’s a specific book you’re looking for that isn't in the van, you can also request books that can later be picked up at the library. Get more info about Library on the Go here. This event is free with Zoo admission or Membership.
