What is the cost
Please go to the CALM ZOO website to verify the following: Adults – $10 Seniors (60+) – $7 Children (3-12) – $5 Children under 3 – FREE United States Military/Veterans (w/ID) - FREE
Can my dog come with me?
I believe the answer is "NO"; unless it is a Certified Service Dog. However, contact CALM directly before going to see if there has been a change in their policies.
How much is the entrance fee?
