Field Trips


A trip to the Zoo offers students a chance to learn about the world around them in a living classroom. Learn about the critically endangered Eastern Black Rhinoceros and why their horns have contributed to their demise. Discover how giraffes use their 18-inch-long tongues to get food. Find out how special markings called “follow me spots” help Amur Tiger cubs find their mothers in the forest. For a unique experience, add an animal encounter, which will allow your students to get up-close to small animals like a Ball Python, Madagascar Hissing Cockroach or an Eastern Screech Owl.
