Just for Educators

We join you in sharing big dreams for our youth and the future of science education. Over the years, we've grown our educational outreach from enhanced field trips to customized classroom experiences tailored to the state's science standards delivered in-person or virtually. In addition to delivering quality programming to enhance your classroom learning, we aim to be your informal education partner as you bring science and nature-based lessons to life. 

Visiting the Zoo


We love school visitors; in fact, we offer discounted admission for groups associated with area schools and non-profits. While you're visiting, consider enhancing your trip with one of our educational programs or a guided tour. And if you're looking for a self-led exploration, our free Do-It-Yourself Investigations or this Guerrilla Geography Mission are perfect field trip additions.
