Saturday Science Club

Join us as we engineer a new Zoo exhibit! Discover how we use science and math to balance the needs of our animals, our visitors, and our keepers. Each month we’ll learn new STEM skills and explore one of the many elements that go into creating a new exhibit. Create a creature that can thrive in a strange environment, develop enrichment for one of our Zoo animals, and see the Zoo through the eyes of different visitors.

This new program for kids ages 8-11 will meet from 10:30 a.m. -12 p.m., one Saturday per month, from Jan. through May. This spring, enjoy the Saturday Science Club for free! Participation is free for Zoo members; non-members can participate for the price of admission. Register for the whole series or just one session online now! Advanced registration is required and space is limited.

  • Love this zoo! Great place to get a walk in and the animals are everywhere! The museum/indoor part is very educational too. Has a lot of shade for when it's hot out. Very clean. Friendly staff.

  • A really great zoo featuring some exotic species and I liked the focus on conservancy/breeding to preserve species for the rhinos. The safari area's cheetah was awesome to see. During a week day going, it was quite open to walk around and enjoy without too much crowding.

  • The museum gives you a break from the sun on hot summer days and has a great selection of animal exhibits from around the world. ¬†The zoo keeps growing and adding new animal habitats or improving existing ones. ¬†Membership offers reciprocal benefits to other zoos around the country.
