Education Stations (All Ages)
When you visit the zoo, you can often expect to see our informative Education Station carts set up throughout the zoo. Here, families can learn about some of our animals in a more hands-on way, including informative talks from our docents, handling bio facts and models, and viewing informative graphics. We are currently featuring stations with information on primates, big cats, Madagascar and raptors.
