Due to the recent avian influenza outbreak in Northern California, our raptor and walkthrough aviaries are closed to the public until the outbreak subsides. This was done out of an abundance of caution to protect our resident birds and keep them safe. We appreciate your understanding.

Masks are required for all guests age 2+

All guests ages 2 and older are required to wear a mask that covers nose and mouth during the visit both indoors and outdoors. This protects our young visitors who cannot be vaccinated and our animals who are susceptible to Covid-19.

We have reusable masks for purchase in adult and child sizes. We also have a limited supply of disposable masks available for free; however, members and guests without masks will not be allowed entry to CuriOdyssey.
