Summer | Offsite Auditorium Programs ~ Zoo Edventure


During this 45-minute program, your group will meet 4 different animal ambassadors and learn about the places that they call home. We will discuss what these animals need to survive and what might happen if those basic needs are not met. We will also discuss the physical features and behavioral adaptations that these animals have for surviving in their habitats. By the end of this program, we hope that participants leave with a greater appreciation for wildlife and the habitats that they live in. This program includes digital learning resources.
