  1. Summer Art Camps
    Join us this July for a pair of week-long summer art camps with instructor Lindi O'Brien. We'll have one July 16-20 for grades 2-5 and one July 30-August 3 for grades 6 and up. The cost is $140 per student for the full week, which includes all materials. Camps are 8:30am to 12:30pm each day.
  2. Customized Tours
    In addition to the standard facility tours, we'll work with teachers to customize tours around specific animal families (felids, canids, raptors, ungulates, or bears). We'll provide interactive materials to provide an in-depth learning experience!
  3. Animal Encounters
    Give your class a one-of-a-kind animal encounter lead by one of our experienced animal care staff. They'll be able to meet a porcupine and learn about these fascinating rodents, or get up-close and personal with aquatic and terrestrial turtles as they learn about invasive species.
  4. Scat & Track Experiences
    Our Education Director is the author of the "Who Pooped in the Park?" book series for children. He will talk about why studying animal scat is important for wildlife biologists and animal care people, show samples of scats and owl pellets, and talk about animal health & nutrition with a focus on bears.
