Discovery Programs are hands-on educational presentations that include live animals, artifacts, and other educational materials. Groups of 30 or fewer are best. Several sessions can be arranged for larger groups. Discovery programs are approx. 30-45 minutes long and feature a variety of topics and age appropriate formats.
Pond Exploration Programs focus on organisms found in and around a pond. These one hour sessions are held right inside Forest Park. Children will meet live animals and take a turn at “pond-dipping” to discover animals and plants that form a freshwater pond community.
Scavenger Hunts are self-guided fun at Zoo. Age appropriate sheets are distributed at the gate upon entrance. The children learn about the Zoo animals and habitats while enjoying nature at its best.
Reservations must be made in advance to take advantage of group discounts. Guided tours and educational programs are available for fees, in addition to admission prices. Please call the team at (413) 733-2251 x303 or click here to email us.
