The Zoo is temporarily closed to the public. We are awaiting approval to re-open when the stay home order is lifted. Please continue to check back for updates.
Guests that have purchased tickets or paid for other programs affected by the closure can contact the Zoo at 559-498-5921 or firstname.lastname@example.org to reschedule or refund their purchase.
General admission tickets remain valid for one year from the date of purchase, so guests can also contact the Zoo to re-schedule their visit upon re-opening. Fresno Chaffee Zoo members will have the option to extend their membership for the length of the closure or donate that time to the Zoo.
Fresno Chaffee Zoo's community outreach program aims to partner with local organizations to connect with our community and share our conservation message. We love to attend celebrations such as school fairs, block parties, and festivals within our local area!
This free service includes a team of trained Docent Volunteers who interact with guests using bio-facts like pelts, skulls, and feathers. This informational table also provides handouts about zoo programs and events.
Invitations to attend should be made at least 3 weeks in advance of your event.
Please have a table, 2 chairs, and shade available for our volunteers.
Kindly note, the community outreach team does not bring out live animals. If you are interested in our Zoomobile program click this link.
Program availability is subject to volunteer availability.
