Zoo Science
Thursday, April 27, 2017
9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Ideal for 3rd – 12th Grade Educators

Science gone wild!  Discover the world of genetics, animal nutrition, husbandry, and so much more!  See how wild science can get as you become a scientist yourself!


Adopt an Animal for your classroom!


Your students will learn to appreciate wildlife on a deeper level through a symbolic adoption of one of the Zoo’s animal residents. With three different adopt levels and 20 different animals from which to choose, you are sure to find the adoption that is right for your classroom.

Find out all the animals you can choose from to adopt:
