Get your students excited about animals with Blank Park Zoo! Educators will bring games, crafts, experiments, and live animal visitors to your school. Programs are 1 hour in length and you can book 4, 6, or 8 week sessions. Each week we cover a new topic like wildlife conservation and zoo careers. We will expand on previous lessons so groups should consist of the same students throughout the session.
Service Project - $50
Are your students looking for a way to get involved or give back? Prior to this program, students will collect household items (cereal boxes, toilet paper rolls, etc.) then join a zoo educator at your site to facilitate the service project. Learn what it takes to keep the animals happy and healthy at the zoo, make enrichment for zoo residents, and meet a special animal guest!
Education Presentation - $90
This is a program for all group sizes and ages. It features four live animals to share during an interactive presentation. Students will be encouraged to answer thought-provoking questions about the animals and will have the opportunity to ask questions of their own.
