Brunch for the Wild Bunch - Oakland Zoo | Kids Out and About San Francisco

Brunch for the Wild Bunch - Oakland Zoo

*The event has already taken place on this date: Sat, 09/10/2022
This event, formerly known as Feast for the Beasts, allows you the rare opportunity to place food around habitats before the animals go out for the day. Spread produce for the elephants, hide seeds for the baboons, spread snacks for the sun bears, or toss treats around the grizzly yard. Do you love giraffe and want to help support them in the wild? We are also offering the opportunity to feed a giraffe! Tickets to participate in the animal spreads are $15 per experience with proceeds going to support Oakland Zoo’s outstanding Animal Care work. Giraffe feedings are $20 with all proceeds going to our conservation partner the Reticulated Giraffe Project in Kenya.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email so we can update it immediately.
