Education

Scovill Zoo’s education programs offer opportunities for animal lovers of all ages to discover the animal kingdom. With Zoo Academy classes, guided tours, and a fantastic Mobile Zoo, Scovill Zoo provides fun, hands-on connections to the animal world.

 

Zoo Buddies

An all-new animal adventure awaits 3 – 5 year olds and their adult guest(s). Can you waddle like a penguin, hoot like an owl, or leap like a lemur? Come discover and play as we learn about a new animal each session. Through the use of short stories and hands on activities we will make connections with some amazing animals. Participants will get to take home their very own Zoo Buddy after each class. Registration begins August 26.
