Zoo to You is a traveling, inquiry-based educational program that visits schools, libraries etc., Each program includes live animals such as birds, reptiles, and invertebrates, among others, and some of the animals may be touchable. We also use biofacts (animal-related artifacts) to create a hands-on experience for the participants. All Zoo to You programs are presented by professional zoo educators and are about 45 minutes.
