Wild Work  

Experience the challenges of working at a zoo in this hands-on program. You will tackle the chores of a keeper, teach “guests” about the animals, and do some real research. You will even learn veterinary responsibilities as you share in the care of one of our animals, as well as many other activities to better understand all the wild jobs in a zoo. Interview a real zookeeper and get your most curious questions about life in a zoo answered!  You’ll also get a chance to design your own exhibit. Monday through Thursday all activities will take place at the zoo, but on Friday afternoon, we’ll take a swim at the outdoor pool. 

Dates: June 19-23 

Times: 9 am – 3 pm 

Cost:  $152; Good Zoo Members take 10% off
