As autumn approaches, thoughts in the Education Department turn to a favorite time of year – back to school. With ZooMobiles, classroom presentations and field trips, we’re wild about learning at the Sacramento Zoo!
Our ZooMobile can come to your child’s classroom and deliver an interactive, educational program with guaranteed up-close animal encounters. We have prepared themes for you to choose from, or we can tailor our program to almost any animal-related theme your class is studying. A ZooMobile visit also makes a great birthday gift at school - what a great way for your child to celebrate his or her birthday with the whole class.
For the full Zoo experience, a field trip is the way to go. Fall is the best time to visit the Zoo. The crowds are smaller, the days are cooler, and the animals are out enjoying the break from the heat of the summer. Field trip groups enjoy exploring the Zoo on their own or with a Docent Educator guided tour. Start the school year off on the right foot with a trek around the Zoo to inspire your student’s imagination and interest.
