The zoo can come to YOU in our off-site outreach programs! Perfect for schools, senior care facilities, libraries, or any group gathering, these presentations offer fun, interactive ways for you to learn about the amazing world of animals at your location. In 1-hour, your group will meet 2-4 of the Zoo’s live education animals, touch animal artifacts (feathers, fur, and skulls), and explore their unique habits and interactions with their environment. Program contents may be adjusted to fit your group’s age or requested topics.
Classy Critters: Animal Diversity (3rd Grade to Adult)
What makes a bird a bird? How is a reptile different? See the world through the eyes of a taxonomist and find out how scientists classify groups of animals. Meet 3-4 of our education animals as you learn about what makes each of them unique.
A Balancing Act: Predators, Prey, and their Ecosystems (3rd Grade to Adult)
Did you know that wolves can change how water flows through a stream? In this program we explore how every species – whether they are eating or getting eaten – has an important role in maintaining balance in the ecosystem. Meet 2-3 animals that each have a different place in the food chain.
Animal Habitats (Kindergarten to 2nd Grade)
Where do animals live? Through activities and meeting live animals we will see that wild critters have the same basic needs that we do.
If you are organizing an expo, festival, or other gathering, consider reserving a table for the zoo. An informal tabling event allows individuals to learn one-on-one from our educators, see some of our education animals up close, and touch a variety of animal artifacts.
