Work alongside one of our experienced educators to customize an experience for your group. Whether you're interested in adaptations or animal survival, beautiful birds or magnificent mammals, just let us know the theme and we'll tailor the experience for your group. Program components can include an up-close animal encounter, a trip into the zoo, and other activities that correspond to your curriculum. Please allow at least 3 weeks prior to your program to work with our educator.
