Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
We connect your life to wildlife while inspiring lifelong learning and conservation action.
Boo at the Akron Zoo is a non-scary trick or treat experience for all ages that runs Saturdays and Sundays from11:00 (Presale)-7:30pm. All guests must purchase tickets, either an observer or treater, before entering the event and can be purchased pre-sale or day of the event. Presale tickets gain entry at 11:00 a.m. and all treat stations close by 8:00 p.m. Treaters will have a candy passport allowing them to collect candy at each station. The entire zoo is open for guests to enjoy. Boo at the Zoo is one of your Akron Zoo’s main events. As a non-profit organization, we rely heavily on our revenue from the concessions, gift shop, admissions, carousel, etc. These monies allow us to provide our animals with the best possible care. In addition to our earned revenue, the Akron Zoo receives funding from a Summit County tax levy, private donations, and fundraisers, such as Boo at the Zoo. In order to keep costs low, we rely on assistance from volunteers for this great event.
