The Zoo is reimagining its Education programs!   We look forward to visiting you, but want to let you know there will be some changes. We will share inspiring stories of our conservation work focused on species found all over the Zoo, and will no longer have live small animal contact in our programs.  We're excited to see you soon!

COVID safety 

When booking, please plan carefully and accordingly in order to meet our COVID safety policies. These include our masking requirements, as well as group size limits. Additionally, a COVID safety contract and liability release will be sent prior to your program date and will need to be signed by an authorized and designated representative of your organization PRIOR to your program taking place.


To protect the children, Zoo staff, volunteers, and guests participating in Education programs, we require all individuals over the age of 2 to wear masks during programs that take place indoors, regardless of vaccination status. Masks must be worn over the mouth and nose. 

Zoo staff and volunteers will also wear masks indoors, regardless of vaccination status, during programs.

Group size

No more than 30 people (students, teachers, chaperones, siblings, etc.) total for any indoor program.

Don’t forget our virtual resources as well.
