Personal Tour Packages

Homeschool Program Packages

Add an educational adventure to your next visit to the Zoo! Our Homeschool program package includes a 60-minute guided tour of several of our animal exhibits, with in-depth animal information and animal artifacts! The tour will be followed by a 30-minute encounter with two of our Ambassador Animals, including a chance to touch at least one of them. At the conclusion of the program, we will provide you with a take-home packet to continue your learning at home!
