Established in 1907, Sequoia Park Zoo is the oldest zoo in California and one of the smallest accredited zoos in the country. Situated next to the magnificent old-growth redwoods of Sequoia Park, the zoo is truly a jewel in the heart of Eureka.

Everyone’s Zoo Program
Do you work with members of our community who may not be able to afford the price of admission or whose connection to community resources and support will in some way benefit their treatment and care?  The goal of the Everyone’s Zoo Program is to provide opportunities for everyone in our community to experience all the educational, interpretive and wonder-inspiring experiences that the Zoo has to offer.  For additional information and application, email everyoneszoo@sequoiaparkzoo.net
