Your administrative fee will cover early access to the zoo, registration tables, chairs and zoo staff support.

Admission includes zoo access and parking, and walk participants are invited to stay and enjoy the zoo for the entire day following the event. Admission tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable. Walks occur in rain, snow or shine.
