HOME SCHOOL SAFARI

Join us for Home School Safari, Blank Park Zoo’s drop-off home school classes. 

Explore the world of science through animals and nature. Join us for monthly hands-on, minds-on science including fun activities, demos and more. Monthly sessions frequently include touring the zoo, visiting with animal ambassadors, interacting with zookeepers, and experiencing other unique resources while building science knowledge. 

Home School Safari classes are held from 1:30 pm - 3:45 pm on the second Friday of every month starting in September 2017 and going through April 2018. Classes are organized in developmental age groups and are taught concurrently: 5-6 year olds, 7-9 year olds, and 10 - 12 year olds.

ZOOKEEPER FOR A DAY

Blank Park Zoo’s Zookeeper for a Day program is for participants 13-17 years old.

This interactive educational offering will give teens an “up-close-and-personal” look at working in a zoo.  Roll-up your sleeves and get ready to help out our professional zookeepers with their daily routines of food preparation, cleaning and animal care for some of Blank Park Zoo’s awesome residents.

Your time “behind-the-scenes” may include being outside and possibly getting a bit wet and a bit dirty, so make sure to wear appropriate clothes including closed-toe shoes (boots that can get wet would be best).

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