Each year the California Living Museum, commonly known as CALM, enlightens us with new animal exhibits that make our zoo like experience an unforgettable and unique adventure. In an effort to see what the zoo is all about nowadays, I decided to visit the zoo and find out for myself what a sunny April Sunday is like at Bakersfield’s zoo.

Another family observing the variety of reptiles such as: the Southern Pacific Rattlesnake and and Northern Pacific rattlesnake. They can be found in the unique cave that is covered by rocks.
Visitors keep walking around as they observe the majestic animals such as the Mallard and Wood ducks.
The Turkey Vulture: a scanvenger that cleans the habitat of rotting, dead flesh.

A father is spending quality time with their children by talking to them about the different animals at the zoo.
Meanwhile, other children simply rejoice themselves in the playground available to them at the entrance of the zoo.

Once again, visiting this wonderful place helped me to reaffirm CALM’s major goal: to educate visitors about the variety of animals and plants that may be endangered or are simply unknown to the community. Whenever you feel like exploring a day at the jungle, don’t think twice about it and visit CALM, after all it is only 20 minutes away from Bakersfield’s downtown.
