Ever want to spend the night at the zoo with your class? With our school year programs, you have three exciting and
curriculum-based topics to choose from!
From where they live to what they eat, animals have adaptations
to aid them in their surroundings.
Our nightly activities investigate how adaptations help an animal survive.
The night will include an after-hours tour, a
evening hike through our Deserts building and an
adaptation game. Together, we will explore how certain physical or
behavioral characteristics aid an organism's fight
for resources, food and survival.
Who’s endangered and why? Get connected and explore what you can do to
help endangered species and habitats around the world. Participants will learn about
how species become endangered and why caring for the animals at the Zoo is
important to the survival of species in the wild. Over the course of the
night, groups will be taken on a behind the scenes tour of the Dolphin Kitchen,
participate in after hour exploration of the Oceans building, and learn more
about conservation through games and a craft. Join us to find out more about what
you can do to help protect the earth and its inhabitants!
Who lives where and why? Discover the importance of habitats to animals
and see what it takes for the Zoo to put together a habitat. Groups
will be taken on a behind the scenes tour of Oceans to see what it takes to
put together a habitat at the Zoo. Also, participants will go on an
exploratory night hike in our Gardens, play games and make a craft!
