Camp Out at the Oakland Zoo

The Oakland Zoo wants you to spend the night. The zoo already offers three separate overnight programs, and a just-announced $80,000 grant from Clorox provides the foundation for a fourth. Tied to the zoo’s emerging California Trails expansion — which will add approximately twenty acres of exhibits and habitat for native California plant and animal species over the next two years — the new overnight program will be geared toward environmental education. According to a press release, Clorox’s contribution allows the zoo to develop educational programming that’s “designed to increase awareness and appreciation of the natural environment and conservation issues.”
