LIVE EVENTS & EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS FOR SCHOOLS

Zoo educators can bring animals to you for fun, interactive programs!

LIVE PROGRAMS:

Many schools already know how easy and economical it is to have special presentations come to them.

Our programs are flexible and self contained.

They can be held in a classroom, assembly or at an outdoor educational site.

Zoological Wildlife Foundation presents safe, live animals to learning groups of all sorts.

An obvious choice of science classes, animal’s programs can add a new dimension to cultural arts, social studies, history and geographical studies.

We will bring the animals, our trained staff and knowledge to you, teaching for 45-55 minutes on a subject you choose.

WHY A LIVE PROGRAM?

Fun. Our education is presenting the animals and the information in a humorous and informative way. The shows are packed with a balance of scientific and silly facts.

Involved. Your group is encouraged to touch the animals and ask questions about them. Studies confirm the the best learning is achieved through active involvement.

Real. No book or videos can ever replace the real thing. Our animal programs literally make the subject matter come alive.

Cost effective. The programs are easily shared between classes and grades.

Convenient. Unlike field trips, presentations are not weather dependent, can be held in the smallest of classes or the largest of auditoriums and can be scheduled any time of the year.
