For students in 2nd - 8th grade.

Join a Children's Zoo keeper for a day of fun and hard work. You will work in an animal room or barn with a keeper and learn to handle a small mammal, bird or reptile and then present the animal to Children's Zoo visitors. You will join the keepers for staff meeting, break time and lunch. Please wear a T-shirt, khaki or jean shorts/pants and old shoes - you will get dirty! Bring a bottle of water and a camera, if you like. A Saint Louis Zoo nametag, snack and lunch will be provided.
