ZOOKEEPER FOR A DAY

Zookeeper for a Day is for children ages 12-17. The kids will be helping the zookeepers take care of their animals from 10-12pm. This will include diet preparation, cleaning, enrichment, and other daily activities. Be prepared to get dirty! Most areas clean with hoses, so make sure your child is wearing appropriate shoes that they don’t mind getting wet (rain boots would be best).  This class accommodates 8 students only, so sign up early!

Member Price: $20
Non-Member Price: $25

This class is designed for children with a special interest in becoming a zoo keeper or working with animals in the future.  Please discuss this with your child and make sure it is something they are truly interested in.
