Zoo To You
When you can’t come to the Zoo, let the N.C. Zoo come to you. The N.C. Zoo education staff has an outreach program that meets the needs of your school group.
The following Outreach Programs are available:
- Classroom Zoo To You EDventures: This education program is designed for groups of less than 30 students. These programs are designed to stimulate curiosity about animals and the habitats, and encourage respect for the natural world.
- Assembly Zoo To You EDventures: This education program is designed for groups of 30 or more. Meet some of our education ambassadors and learn about the importance of wildlife not just in the world, but in our own backyards.
- Zoo to You Pre-School Programs
We are currently fully booked and no longer scheduling programs for the 2012-2013 school year.
Zoo to You programs are offered subject to availability. Up to four programs per day can be scheduled at one location. The N.C. Zoo requires a minimum of two weeks notice for any Zoo to You programs.
Offsite programs cost $75. We can travel to schools located up to 100 miles from the Zoo. For locations outside a 25 mile radius of the N.C. Zoo, an additional charge of $.45 per mile, round trip will be added. Onsite programs cost $50.
Full payment is required a minimum of one week prior to the scheduled program date.
