Let us come to you! Zoo Outreach Programs
Zoo New York offers educational demonstrations of our animal ambassadors to help foster an appreciation for wildlife and to increase awareness of our surrounding environments as a part of our educational programming.
This program option is available for schools, libraries, community centers, local events/festivals, and other educational venues. Our Educators will arrive at your location and are able to provide age-appropriate programs to suit your needs and objectives.
Zoo New York is proud to present Educational Programming that strives to meet Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). The Zoo currently offers three grade-specific program options for EdZOOcation bookings. We will work with teachers and educators to provide the best program for your group. We are continually striving to create more opportunities for education. Please contact our Education Department with any questions.
