Greenie's Conservation Corner

The San Francisco Zoo celebrated Earth Day in 2010 with the grand unveiling of Greenie’s Conservation Corner. This lively, sustainable space interactively engages visitors and helps inspire "green" practices at home, school, and within the community. Near the Patas Lawn, the 4,000-square-foot Greenie’s Conservation Corner features an organic garden growing food for some of the Zoo’s animals, an historic 1906 earthquake shack, working rain barrel harvesting system, solar-powered fountain, wind turbine, worm farm, drip irrigation, water-wise gardens, bat houses, beehives and more.
