About our Programs
Our school and group programs are great for any group – not just schools! Scouts, homeschool groups, libraries, senior centers and more can all enjoy these exciting offerings. These programs give participants a memorable, fun and highly educational way to learn about animals and conservation. Choose one of three ways to learn:
- At the Zoo
- Bring the Zoo To You
- Go Virtual
All programs are age-appropriate and complement the Virginia Standards of Learning along with curriculum requirements in North Carolina and for private schools. Scouts can also complete certain badge requirements; ask us for more information!
