WILDLIFE ADVENTURES CLASSROOM PROGRAM

Enhance any classroom lesson on nature, wild animals, conservation, etc., or reward students for outstanding performances by treating them to an in-class encounter with an amazing zoo program animal - or perhaps two or three.  The Wildlife Adventures classroom program is perfect as a lesson enhancement or performance reward for any age student.  It is a 30-minute informal experience that introduces students to one or more of our animal ambassadors and helps them better understand and appreciate the wonders of the wild.


MAXIMUM PROGRAM CAPACITY =
35 STUDENTS PLUS 6 ADULTS / lesson to assure educational effectiveness, safety and fun!  

WE ARE UNABLE TO PRESENT ASSEMBLY PROGRAMS AT THIS TIME.
