Enhance Your Visit
Make the most of your Zoo visit! Utilize any of the following self-guided resources to enhance your experience, before, during, and after.
Wild about Trees
Observe, measure, and identify any of the hundreds of trees on Zoo grounds. The Wild About Trees S.T.E.A.M. packet comes with everything* you need to get started on your study of trees, including a list of native trees, leaf identification key, and instructions on how to identify a tree based on visual and numerical observations. Report your findings to zoo staff to be cataloged for future use.
(NOTE: Wild About Trees is most suited for middle and high school students, but can be done by any age child with the help of an adult. *Requires writing utensil & measuring tape or string ~3ft in length.)
Explore a specific topic like endangered species or enjoy learning new facts about the whole Zoo!
Enhance your Zoo field trip with these downloadable Teacher Guides. Each Guide complements one of our formal school programs. Use them with your students before, during, or after the field trip to prepare them, engage them, and dive deeper into your academic goals. (Coming in 2020)
