About the Education Department

The Education Department offers programs designed to help individuals and families of all ages and abilities learn through experience, involvement and discovery.


To prevent the spread of COVID-19, additional restrictions will be required for attending all in-person programs. 

  • Masks are required for all program participants, and are to be worn both inside and outside.
  • Participants attending multi-day programs will be required to complete a daily screening form.
  • If a program session is cancelled due to COVID-19 related issues, we will offer a virtual program if applicable, or issue a full refund.
  • We will communicate any changes based on Zoo policy as we get closer to your program date.
