Go Wild Learning with Utah’s Hogle Zoo’s Preschool Outreach Programs

Your early childhood classroom will come alive when the Zoo arrives! Friendly animals, fun stories and much more combine with expert presenters to make your program fun and educational. During these interactive lessons, a Zoo Educator will visit your preschool classroom for a 45-60 minute lesson. All classes will include a story, biofacts investigation time, a craft, and a chance to meet one of the Zoo’s animal friends in an up close and personal encounter.
