About This Show

What began in the mid-1960s as a modest dream of a few business leaders to create a small children's petting zoo has evolved into today's nationally ranked Riverbanks Zoo and Garden, visited by more than one million guests annually and supported by a membership base of more than thirty-three thousand households. Recognized today as one of America's best zoos, Riverbanks Zoo and Garden celebrated its 40th anniversary April 25, 2014.

Palmer "Satch" Krantz and Monique Blanchette Jacobs tell the remarkable story of this unique place in Riverbanks Zoo and Garden: Forty Wild Years (USC Press, 2014) through anecdotal stories and nearly two hundred brilliant photographs and illustrations, making it easy to see why Riverbanks is recognized as one of the nation's great zoological parks and botanical gardens.
