Educator Workshops

Nature Based Learning
Saturday, April 13
9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Ideal for all Grade Levels

Discover new ways to help your students fall in love with nature! Children have a natural affinity with nature.  Evidence shows that regular contact with nature enhances creativity, boosts academic performance and ultimately increases focus, attention and enthusiasm for learning.  Through this workshop, teachers will learn techniques to help create meaningful connections between their students and the natural world in their classroom every day.

Educator Open House

Thank you to all the educators that attended our 2018 Educator Open House!  We hope you left with some great ideas on how to save animals in the wild in your new school year.  We look forward to seeing you at more events this Fall!

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.
