Education is an important part of our mission. From programs that enhance families’ visits to the Zoo to Scout Snoozes and academic presentations, we deliver many opportunities to help visitors learn more about our world and its fantastic animals.
We can reinforce science lessons with our animals in informative programs that reinforce Standards of Learning (SOL) for pre-K through 12th grades.
