Saturday, May 20; 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM
The Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens

The Los Angeles Zoo is one of the few places where the public can easily see island foxes up close. All day Saturday, May 20th the docent Conservation Committee of the Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens will be hosting their Third Annual Island Fox Festival. There will be:

  • keeper & docent talks at the island fox enclosure
  • interactive stations on the island fox, native plants and island conservation
  • crafts and face painting
  • special presentations, activities and more
Representatives from Friends of the Island Fox and the Channel Islands National Park will also be on-hand.

At the Friends of the Island Fox booth you’ll be able to see one of the radio collars we are funding so island foxes can be returned to the wild. We will also be conducting demonstrations of radio telemetry tracking throughout the day.

Come join us for a great day at the L.A. Zoo celebrating the island fox!
