Location and Entrance: 1 Zoo Rd, San Francisco, CA 94132, however, the Zoo's Wildlife Connection Gift Shop is nearest to the actual event location. Once you are PAST the gift shop, look for signs pointing to the B.A.T.S. Teen Career Conference check-in area (see custom map below).
Public Transportation is Highly Recommended: The Zoo can be reached via the L-Taraval, 18-46th Ave, and 23-Monterey San Francisco Muni lines. The Zoo is also within walking distance or easy transfer from the 57-Parkmerced, 29-Sunset, and the 48-Quintara Muni lines. From BART, head to the Glen Park Station and transfer to the Outbound 23-Monterey SF Muni bus line at the southwest corner of Diamond and Bosworth streets and take the 23 to the end of the line.
Parking: If you must drive, parking at the Zoo costs $12 and is not included in your registration. Additionally, the Zoo parking lot fills up very quickly on Saturdays, especially by the afternoon. There is some free parking along Sloat Blvd, but these spots also fill up quickly and require some significant walking to the main entrance. Please also note that the Zoo's parking lot has only two entrances, one off of northbound Great Highway, and one off of eastbound Sloat Blvd at 47th Avenue.
PARENTS PLEASE NOTE THIS IMPORTANT CHANGE: Due to the predicted rain for the morning of our event this Saturday at the San Francisco Zoo, entrance to the Zoo parking lot is free up until 9am so that students can be dropped off as close as possible to the Zoo's main entrance. AFTER 9AM, please do not enter the Zoo parking lot unless you plan to spend the day at the Zoo, because you will have to pay a $12 parking fee to exit.
