Ways to Help



Teachers! Are you looking for an Education Opportunity for your students during your zoo fieldtrip?

You must pre-register by calling the Education Department to reserve a presentation for your group.  We are offering an "Animal Meet and Greet"  where the kids will learn about 3 different animals and their adaptations.  It is appropriate for all age groups/grade levels.  We are also offering an "Endangered Species" program for grades 9-12. The cost for a 30 minute program is $40. The program fee for an hour-long class with tour is $50 per session and $40 for each additional class from the same school on the same day.  Short on time?  The program fee is in addition to your admission cost.  Programs are limited to 25 students per session with up to two sessions scheduled in the same one-hour time slot.

Please call (814) 864-4091 Ext. 247 or email kbowes@eriezoo.org to schedule.
