Living with Nature
Four times a year we bring the Zoo to you virtually in our Living with Nature series. This series is designed specifically for middle school and high school students. We focus on four themes each year - green practices, animal welfare and biology, regional conservation, and international conservation. Each event include pre- and post-activities as well as an activity during the event itself. All events are recorded so you can participate in them live or do them at a later date. Registration is required for the live events.
We are currently assessing what Zoo Club will look like in the future, but if you would like to be on a mailing list please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. See below for what Zoo Club has entailed in the past.
Home School groups may become a part of Zoo Club by registering a group of at least 30 students. Programs are tailored for K-8 grades so Pre-K and 9-12 graders are not able to partake in this opportunity, but can look into EDventures @ the Zoo programming on the School’s webpage.
A coordinator of the group will be responsible for securing an offsite location and getting together all the necessary information for registration.
Each Zoo Club gets four total programs throughout the school year:
• Offsite Location = one in fall and one in spring (Currently not offered due to COVID-19)
• Onsite = one in fall and one in spring
Membership fees for 2021-2022 Zoo Club are $20 per child. These fees will cover the cost of all program components for the current school year (September - May). Individual fees are to be collected by the group coordinator and one check for the whole club sent in no later than August 31st, 2021.
This program can travel to groups located up to 100 miles from the Zoo. For locations outside a 25-mile radius, a one-time additional charge of $.50 per mile, round trip will be added.
