The red pandas will not be the only ones in masks at the Sequoia Park Zoo starting July 7. Visitors will need to make reservations online, which is meant to limit crowds, and wear masks on the premises. (Do not make a fuss over this — even the howler monkeys find it overdramatic.) One-way paths will be marked and guests are asked to observe 6-foot social distance from other households. Just like Super Salmon is doing.

SEQUOIA PARK ZOO REOPENS JULY 7, Online Reservations Required
EUREKA, CA – The Sequoia Park Zoo is excited to welcome you back! Beginning July 7th, the Zoo will officially reopen to the general public, with a Zoo Members-only preview weekend on July 3rd-July 5th. Zoo Staff have been hard at work to create a safe environment for your next Zoo experience. In order to limit capacity and allow for social distancing, online reservations are now required via sequoiaparkzoo.net.
Additional safety measures you will notice on your next Zoo visit include requiring Zoo staff and guests to wear face masks, directional signage on some pathways, encouraging social distancing of at least 6-feet between groups, increased cleaning and sanitization practices and closing certain high touch areas. These key safety measures have been implemented as part of our re-opening plan with the County. Please visit sequoiaparkzoo.net/covid-19 for more details on what to expect during your visit.
The Sequoia Park Zoo will be open (starting July 7) daily Tuesday-Sunday from 10:00 AM-5:00 PM with last entry at 4:00 PM. The Zoo will be closed every Monday.
