Renew the Zoo projects involve landscaping and clean-up work that may include digging, planting, weeding, raking, general grounds clean-up, or similar tasks. If you are participating with an organized group, all the members of your group will be assigned to the same project. Larger groups may be split into two project areas.
At the conclusion of your work, Renew the Zoo participants receive a voucher good for that day's admission, a free ride on the carousel and the Little Puffer train, and other discounts at Zoo concessions, many of the groups who participate do so as part of an all-day visit to the Zoo.
The San Francisco Zoo, housing more than 260 animal species, is located in the southwestern corner of San Francisco, California nestled between Lake Merced and the Pacific Ocean along the Great Highway. The zoo's main entrance, once located on the north side across the street from the defunct Doggie Diner, and one block south of the Muni Metro L Taraval line, is now to the west on the ocean side of the zoo off of the Great Highway.
This zoo is the birthplace of Koko the gorilla
