The education department offers fun educational experiences for a wide range of visitors. Whether you are a family, teacher, general visitor or representative of a group, we offer programs to meet your needs and interests.
Reservations are required for all programs. There is limited space in each program so please register early. A minimum number of registrants is required to run a program.
All education programs, including Edventure Academy, camps, and overnights, will run as scheduled unless the zoo has been closed by order of Onondaga County administration. Sorry, but no refunds or rain checks will be given for 'no-shows' for any reason.
Scout groups, Rotary, home school... if you belong to, or are active in any of these or other groups and would like to arrange a custom educational program on a specific topic, call the zoo's education department. We will work with your group to design a special program to meet your needs.
For on-site programs during a field trip to the zoo, family and adult programs, call 315-435-8511 x357.
For off-site Zoo to You programs, call Gareth at 315-435-8511 x124.
Fees, times and availability depend on the program content, duration and materials needed. When considering such a program, please plan at least 6 weeks in advance.
