It will be even more exciting when they experience up close animal encounters, and play the animal classification quiz show!

Older learners can learn about research the zoo does, and participate in a field study and data collecting. College groups can add a lecture to enrich the trip. Scouts love the Nocturnal Adventure, where they can spend the night in the zoo!
