There are so many animals in the world; it's hard to learn about them all! But with basic classification, you can learn about groups of animals and learn about shared characteristics. In this overnight adventure students will learn how to classify major groups of animals by stepping into a dichotomous key during "What's in Your Bag". Students will learn shared characteristics of some of their favorite Zoo animals through the use of biofacts and observations. Other activities include a night hike, and a scavenger hunt on Zoo grounds.

**Overnight Programs include: a pizza snack, a movie, a continental breakfast, and souvenirs are also included.
