Charles Paddock Zoo presenting ‘Zoo Trivia Night’ 

Charles Paddock Zoo re-opens Friday

Proceeds from the event support the Friends of the Charles Paddock Zoo

–  Are you a wise owl? Zoo Trivia Night might be one way to find out! Plan to come and impress the zookeepers with your animal knowledge at the 2nd Annual Zoo Trivia Night at the Charles Paddock Zoo on Saturday, March 12 from 5 – 8 p.m.

Tickets for this event include zoo admission along with three beverages (wine or beer) plus prizes will be provided for both first and second place. Individual tickets are $30 per ticket or you can get a table of five for $125 for the group. Other food and drinks are available for purchase from Paradise Shaved Ice and all proceeds support the Friends of the Charles Paddock Zoo.

This might be a trivia question, so it’s important to know that the Charles Paddock Zoo is one of about 233 total institutions that are accredited by the Association of Zoos & Aquariums (AZA) out of over 3,000 zoos in the United States. The zoo is dedicated to the conservation of endangered species, educating the public about the natural world, and providing a safe and stimulating recreational resource for residents and visitors of the Central Coast of California.

There are over 200 animal species to enjoy at the Charles Paddock Zoo, and many are part of a globally managed program to preserve animals and their habitats. The zoo features several unique species not often seen in facilities of its size, including fossa, red pandas, Malayan tiger, lemurs, and meerkats, as well as many other exciting and interesting mammals, birds, reptiles, and insects. Lots of fun happening at the zoo.

For rules and more information about this event, please visit our website at or call (805) 461-5080. The Charles Paddock Zoo is located next to Atascadero Lake Park on Highway 41.
