Zoo to Host Spooky Halloween Program

Tales of ghosts, goblins and things that go bump in the night will fill the air this weekend at America's Teaching Zoo at Moorpark College.

A voice-over artist and storyteller will spin scary tales during special Halloween shows Saturday and Sunday.

Ann Stoeker, head coordinator of the Simi Valley Library Story Time program, will treat zoo visitors with frightening stories at 12:30 and 2:30 p.m. Saturday, including a Halloween favorite, "The Ghost-Eye Tree."

Voice-over artist Steve Blum from the television program "Xena: Warrior Princess" will entertain zoo visitors at 1:30 and 3:30 p.m. Sunday.

The zoo is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays with wildlife education shows at noon, 1, 2 and 3 p.m. Admission is $4 for adults, $3 for children under 12 and free for children under 2.

Weekday tours and school assembly programs can be arranged by calling the zoo at 378-1441.

Founded in 1974, the zoo promotes conservation of wildlife and wild lands through education and is home to 150 animals representing 115 species.
