Yes, with guidelines.
Based upon the large military presence in San Diego County, the San Diego Zoo handles such requests in two ways:
1. You have the option to formally book a specific event with our Event Sales department. This is the only way you may “reserve” a specific space (for a fee) and have exclusive use of that space for your purposes. Event Sales may be contacted directly via phone at (619) 685-3259 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
2. You may contact us regarding your plans and you will be informed of the following guidelines:
-Prior notification is appreciated, but should not to be construed as a formal reservation or approval of your planned gathering;
-When visiting the Zoo for any reason, all guests must have a valid form of entry (i.e. Active Duty ID, valid admission ticket or current membership);
-No exhibit space or room will be reserved for the exclusive use for your ceremony;
-The Panda Exhibit may never be used as a back-drop for such a ceremony or activity;
-The duration of any activity should be limited to no more than 5 - 10 minutes;
- Any related activity may not--for any amount of time--block any exhibit area or pathway that in any way inhibits use by other Zoo guests or staff.
Thank you for your service to our country.
