The Folsom Zoo is great for all ages. It is essentially an animal sanctuary that allows visitors because the animals in this zoo are not bred, sold, or traded. Once they are at the zoo/sanctuary they are cared for as long as they live.
Animals at the zoo include bears, tigers, cougars, bobcats, birds, foxes, wolves, wolf hybrids, coyote, feral pigs, horses, sheep, deer, macaques, squirrel monkeys, raccoons, skunks, and squirrels.
There is info posted about how many of the animals came to live there. Learn more about the Zoo Sanctuary.
A Scavenger Hunt for Older Kids
Our host, Dina, will be assigning the older kids a scavenger hunt to work on together as an ice breaker. They will have to gather a few facts about certain animals, and search for a few items.
Tickets for children under 2 are free, ages 2-12 are $5, and 12+ are $6. We'll try to get group rates.
We'll meet at the main gate at 11, and head out to explore the park at 11:15 AM.
Let's discuss lunch options in the space below.
