FAMILY PROGRAMMING

Adventure awaits your family at Brevard Zoo! Come see what’s new during your next visit or continue your adventure with a variety of education programs offered to families.


EXCEPTIONAL NATURE SPACE

A new kind of natural play area designed to meet the unique needs of children with varying exceptionalities and their families.  The Exceptional Nature Space is a modified natural habitat that is both safe and stimulating. It is designed to be flexible so that it can be easily reset and reprogrammed to best serve children with different challenges.  Visit our Exceptional Nature Space page to learn more about upcoming programs and events.


FAMILY NATURE CLUB

Rove the lagoon, the uplands and shore…..leave no child indoors, come out and explore! Nature play begins here!

Nature play begins here! Join our FREE Family Nature Club as we explore the exciting outdoor experiences Brevard County has to offer. Our monthly Saturday morning meet-ups will help families discover new outdoor experiences and often include giveaways. Free registration required. Email edprograms@brevardzoo.org for more information.


NATURE WALKS ON BREVARD ZOO’S LINEAR TRAIL

Bring your family out for a nature walk on the Zoo’s Linear Trail!  If your family has never visited the Zoo’s Linear Trail this is the perfect family morning or evening stroll to get out and see what you might discover! The 10-foot wide boardwalk forged from recycled-plastic planks winds through the wetlands and oak hammocks on a 1.1-mile route. The trail is located at the end of the road, just past the Zoo’s main parking lots and is open during regular Zoo hours.

FROGWATCH

Is your family interested in becoming a citizen scientist? Would you like to be a part of a nationwide conservation effort? Or do they simply want to help save frogs? Then consider signing up for a FrogWatch USA training session! No previous experience or expertise necessary! FrogWatch trainees will learn how to identify local frog and toad species by their calls as well as learn about amphibian biology, amphibian conservation and wetlands. If you hear frogs and toads calling at home you could monitor your own backyard! Learn more.
