Tis the season for "Holiday With the Critters"!

Come one, come all to our annual holiday family festival, “Holidays with the Critters," at the Santa Ana Zoo on Saturday, December 17 and Sunday, December 18 (rain or shine).

The event features enchanting animals, beautifully lighted displays, seasonal music, fun interactive crafts, and holiday storytelling placed all around the Zoo entrance and farm area, which are transformed into a winter wonderland!
Along with the crafts and holiday decorations, the evenings will feature an assortment of music from DJ Steve and others, dancing,  and five “treat” stations, including an additional “prize!”

Come early and see "Quitara", our pregnant female camel... There was no room at the inn so she came to live with us at the Zoo this winter!

The Santa Ana Zoo is the only AZA certified zoo in Orange County.  This distinction allows us to bring in animals and exhibits from other AZA facilities, and ensures a better quality of life for the animals in our care.  We also partner with other conservation agencies throughout the world to help guarantee that endangered species are given a better chance to survive, and promote animal and habitat conservation.
