Zoo on the Go

The Zoo in Forest Park & Education Center is proud to present our Zoo On the Go Program.

Zoo On the Go is an educational outreach program that brings live animals, artifacts and other educational materials to schools, daycare centers, hospitals, retirement centers, camps and other locations. This innovative program features a variety of animal ambassadors and artifacts.

Zoo On The Go presentations are designed to provide information about the animals, including their special adaptations, habitats, behavior, diets and status in the wild. Sessions provide an opportunity for students to touch and observe the animals, as well as ask individual questions. Special topics can also be arranged to correspond with classroom projects.

30 minute presentation - $150 plus a travel fee

60 minute presentation- $225 plus a travel fee


For groups of 30 or more participants, we offer:
