BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KERO) — The California Living Museum announced that the zoo will reopen on Saturday. Ahead of the big day, 23ABC took a look behind the scenes to get acquainted with some of the animals you'll meet this weekend!

Hours of operation will be Wednesday through Sunday, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Guests are asked to wear their masks for those 3-years-old and up and to maintain social distancing. While Kern County is still in the Purple Tier, the Reptile House and the California Coast Room will be closed. The Gift Store will be open for admission only.

While the 38-year-old zoo was closed, two areas were renovated, including the Shorebird Exhibit as well as the expansion of equine paddock.

CALM memberships will be honored and extended for lapsed time while the zoo was closed.
