Edzoocation Programs & Tours
Edzoocation Programs are 30-minute programs that incorporate animal ambassadors, biofacts and multimedia to teach students about a variety of topics. Edzoocation Tours integrate classroom learning and real-world applications with the ones who know it best! Learn about the region’s wildlife and see animals in their habitats up close on these 45-minute to 1 hour guided tours of a specific zoo area.
Zoo To You Programs
Zoo-To-You Programs are 45-minute presentations from a zoo educator and some of our popular animal ambassadors. Animal ambassadors may include birds, reptiles, amphibians, insects, and small mammals. Sorry, the zebra won’t fit in the van! These programs are a great supplement to your school curriculum, after-school program, scout meeting, summer camp, community programs, and more!
