California Living Museum reopens

California Living Museum

The California Living Museum (CALM) announced the zoo reopened on Saturday, March 6. Hours of operation are Wednesday-Sunday, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“We can’t wait to see our members and guests again,” said Zoo Manager Lana Fain. “We’ve missed them!”

Guests are asked to wear their masks (for those three years old and up) and to maintain social distancing. While Kern County is still in the Purple Tier, the Reptile House and the California Coast Room will be closed. The Gift Store will be open for admission only.

While the 38-year-old zoo was closed, two areas were renovated, including the Shorebird Exhibit as well as the expansion of equine paddock (Peggy, Flappy and Wolfie are delighted!).

CALM memberships will be honored and extended for lapsed time while the zoo was closed.

CALM is located 15 minutes from downtown Bakersfield, between Lake Ming and Hart Park.
