DISCOVERY CART TOUR

Sit back in the comfort of our expedition cart, as you enjoy a 60-minute guided tour of the Zoo led by one of our knowledgeable guides. As you explore the Zoo together, your guide will share stories about the plants and animals in our care, and how our conservation research is making an impact worldwide. The Discovery Tour route includes areas of the Zoo not seen from the Guided Bus Tour, and the small group size allows us to answer all your questions! Step off the cart for a closer look at some of your favorite critters, and snap some amazing photos, as you enjoy this unique Zoo experience.

The Flower Fields

Mar 1 - May 9, 2021

For more than sixty years, Mother Nature has transformed the rolling hills of North San Diego County into one of the most spectacular and coordinated displays of natural color and beauty anywhere in the world. The nearly fifty acres of Giant Tecolote Ranunculus flowers that make up the Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch in Carlsbad, California, are in bloom for approximately six to eight weeks each year - from early March through early May - literally bringing the famous fields back to life. This annual burst of color, which has become part of the area’s local heritage, also is one of nature’s official ways of announcing the arrival of spring here in Southern California.
