Did You Know?
It takes 3 of our keepers to lift our powerful Burmese Python.
For people unable to participate in The BIG Zoo Lesson week but want more than a one-hour tour or class visit, our Education Department has created the perfect compromise: a one-day extended learning class.
This program is perfect for teachers, other educators, and scout troops who want to spend a fun-filled day learning about wildlife. Structured to meet the needs of your school's curriculum and MEAP objectives, we offer teacher-designed programs on adaptations, food chains, and animal classifications. Looking for something specific, you can request that a program be tailored to meet your specific needs!
Included with this program is a two-hour, one-on-one planning session where teachers can meet with our Education Curator in a consultation designed to discover your needs and to make sure that the day-long program is everything you want it to be!
The cost for this intensive, full-day session is priced based on the program you design. Make arrangements for your program today by contacting Education Curator Dennis Laidler at (517) 342-2714.
