We'll Bring the Zoo to You!
We are making exciting changes to our education programs! While we are making our curriculum better, we will not be offering programming January through March 2019. While formal programs cannot be booked at this time, we invite you to check out a Zoocase from our Library and Teacher Resource Center.
We provide programming for anyone, from ages 2-102, including schools, libraries, senior groups, scout groups, day cares and numerous other community organizations. All of our programs can be adapted to fit your group's unique needs.
Available Outreach Programs
You don't have to be a kid to enjoy the Zoo -- you don't even have to come to the Zoo at all (although of course we love to have you here). If you can't visit us, then we can come to you!
The Saint Louis Zoo delivers adult outreach programs to libraries, senior centers, and various other community groups. Each program offers educational content, live animals interactions, and various objects from the animal world.
The programs listed here are options for community groups, including libraries, scout groups, and camps. The ideal age for each program is listed with the program title. Each program offers educational content, live animal interactions, and may include various objects from the animal world.
These programs are specifically designed for students aged Preschool through 2nd grade.
Because it's not always possible for school groups to visit the Zoo for one of our on-grounds education programs, we're happy to come to you.
Let the Saint Louis Zoo come to you! We can present fun programs at your site. Each program starts with a song and a live animal presentation, followed by multi-sensory hands-on activity centers, and concludes with additional live animal interactions. Each child will create something to take home.
Our programs can be presented to participants of all ages with a wide range of abilities. We will work with you to meet the unique needs of your group. Programs can be presented one time or as part of a series. Our visits have the most impact when we see a group for three visits or more. (Class size: minimum of 8, maximum of 16.)
The Saint Louis Zoo has a variety of outreach programs that can be delivered to large groups. Fun and informative, these programs were designed mainly for school groups but are appropriate for all ages and audiences. Below you will find some of our most popular assembly programs along with some new offerings. However, most of our programs can be adapted for large groups. We customize each program to meet your organization's needs, whether it's a corporate conference, scout pack meeting or school celebration or you can work with our staff to create a new program just for you.
