Zoo Explorations

Choose Your Own Tour Topic.

Let the Zoo's education department custom design a guided program just for your group. Topics can be personalized to your group's special interests. During these programs, you'll meet Zookeepers, have an animal experience and participate in fun activities while you learn amazing things about the nation's only mountain Zoo. Just give us a topic and the amount of time (one or two hours), and we'll give you a personalized program!
