School Outreach Programs
Enhance wildlife and conservation studies in your classroom with a visit from Utah’s Hogle Zoo! To schedule a program, please call 801-584-1713.
Our elementary school programs are based on Utah state core curriculum, and are offered for grades K-5. Presentations are approximately one hour long, and are geared to individual classrooms to allow students to see and touch our amazing animals.
Presentations on conservation, habitats, taxonomy and animal adaptations can also be arranged for secondary science classes.
These presentations are done by our Docent volunteers, and are scheduled by availability. Be first in line for a presentation by calling at the beginning of the school year to schedule your classroom program. Classroom outreach pricing is $50 for the first classroom, and $35 for each classroom for up to two more classrooms. Prices are per Zoo staff member. Our staff and animals are limited to three programs per day.
Do several classes in your school want the Zoo to visit?
If more than four classes at your school would like an animal presentation, ask about our Zoomobile! Zoomobile programs visit 6-12 classrooms at one school on the same day. Pricing for Zoomobile programs is the same as for standard classroom outreach (see above.)
