In this follow-along drawing activity, we’ll learn about how careful observation helps us to draw, and learn about the natural world. Scientists and artists use very similar skills when observing animals.
You may think bugs are gross, but they have important jobs to do! Learn all about them as you train to be a bug guidance counselor. Through live bugs and biofacts, we’ll meet with four career representatives – bugs that represent the important jobs bugs do in their ecosystems; pollinator, decomposer, predator, and food source.
Get ready to break out your trunks of truth and ears of doubt as you weigh in on some true or false elephant trivia to learn more about the world’s largest land animal. We’ll look at pictures, videos, biofacts (animal “artifacts” like bones, etc.) Depending on conditions, we may even take a trip through the zoo to go visit our elephants...
Join us in the zoo kitchen to learn how we prepare food for the zoo animals. Each animal has a specific diet chosen for them by our vets, and then it’s up to the keepers, diet techs, and volunteers (aka zoo chefs) to prepare each diet to perfection.
We'll help you have a WILD time on your birthday by bringing some of our animals to your party virtually. Your party visit will include a themed program, activities, and a chance to meet three of our animal ambassadors.
