A Very Special Event- Celebrating 100 Years
Horticultural Evening at the San Diego Zoo     

Save the date! You won't want to miss this special evening with the Horticultural Society at the San Diego Zoo.

The zoo celebrates its 100th anniversary this year.  The zoo has become world famous not only for the animals but also its outstanding plant collections and gardens.  So much so, that the San Diego Horticultural Society has named the past and present horticulturists at the zoo as their Horticulturist of the year. 

Highlights of the evening:

  • 20% off zoo entrance tickets. 
    • Event registration required to receive discount coupon via email.  
    • Coupon is valid for online purchase July 1 to July 11 and at the zoo ticket booth on July 11.
    • You may purchase up to 6 tickets.  
    • Tickets purchased are good for one year after purchase date.
  • Free (with advance registration) 35 minute long horticulture bus tours of zoo's botanical collections.
    • When registering select bus tour time, 5:30 or 6:00. 
    • If you are a zoo member, registration is still required for the bus tours.
    • If you are bringing a guest, please include them as guests when you register for a bus tour.
  • Meet and greet the horticulturists and tour the zoo botanical nursery and orchid house. They will also be located at the plant collections and themed gardens to answer questions.
  • Self-guided tours of the San Diego Zoo's spectacular gardens and plant collections any time you choose.
