Families & Community Groups
Educational opportunities everyday!
Seeing families exploring the zoo together is great. We encourage you to ask any of our Zookeepers any questions you may have about our animals. Also, make sure to check the Daily Schedule as you enter the zoo for any scheduled programs of Zookeeper chats.
Are you a Scout leader or volunteer with any other community group or club?
Would you like to have Animal Encounters at your next event? From college campuses to parades, to festivals, and everything in between, our Education & Outreach team wants to connect people to nature.
If you’d like the zoo to participate in your community group, please contact our Education & Outreach Department at [email protected] or click Zoo Program Options or Request a Zoo Program for further details.
