Zoo To You Program

Zoo-To-You programs are 45-minute presentations from a zoo educator and some of our 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!
