Monthly Chapter Meeting and Board Member Elections

Our monthly meetings are held the first Thursday of each month. Our next meeting is October 5th at 6:30pm at the Sequoia Park Zoo. You may enter through Gate C. We will also be holding our officer elections. To qualify to run, you must be a member of national AAZK and our chapter. We hope to see everyone at the meeting and running for board seats! 

We are a volunteer organization made up of professional zoo keepers from the Sequoia Park Zoo and interested community members who are dedicated to professional animal care and conservation. Read more about us here.
