Things To Consider Before Your Visit

  • Please Do Not Feed the Animals

    Our animals have specific diets and nutritional needs and we request that you please not feed them. Because some animals are under strict diets for medical reasons, it is vitally important that this policy is followed.

  • Animals Do Not Like to Be Teased!

    For the welfare of our animals, we ask you not to tease, whistle or yell at the animals at the Zoo. And, please do not throw food or anything else into the animal exhibits.

  • No dogs or other pets are allowed on zoo grounds,

    except service dogs.

  • No bicycles,

    tricycles, scooters, skateboards, rollershoes or rollerblades.

    A Picture is worth a thousand words…

    We encourage you to photograph or videotape any of the animals, but you must stay safely behind any barriers and remain in the public areas at all times. If you are a member of the media and would like further assistance to photograph or videotape animals at closer range, please contact the Zoo’s management at zoobooth@folsom.ca.us or call (916) 461-6629.
