SUNRISE SURPRISE STROLL

What will you see this month? Walk the grounds with experienced Zoo educators as they share the latest updates on our animal collection and the “inside secrets” of what’s going on, all before the Zoo opens for the day.

This is a 90-minute walking tour to areas in natural hills and valleys, and includes breakfast muffins and coffee.

Reservations are required prior to the stroll. Limited space is available. Printed tickets must be presented at check-in. Check-in at the Dickinson Family Center for Lifelong Learning.

The Flower Fields

Mar 15 - 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.

Del Mar Racing Season

Jul 16 - Sep 6, 2021

Fans flock to the track each summer to wager on their favorite horses during the popular, annual Del Mar Racetrack racing season, mid-July - early-September. Be part of the magic and nostalgia of this long-time horse race tradition dating back to 1937 when Bing Crosby greeted the first guests, and Seabiscuit won by a nose in the infamous race in 1938. This season features the nation's top racehorses, trainers and jockeys, and plenty of fun in the sun.
