    2017 Indian River Lagoon Exploration Day for homeschoolers was fantastic! Hope to see you at the lagoon!

    Pictures from our Spring Lagoon Day where we participated in scientific discovery and a whole lot of fun! We participated in a day of seining, hands-on research, and conservation activities!

  • Bobcats, Alligators and Coyotes...Oh My!

    January

    Learn how to live peacefully with local wildlife as we study the animals in our own backyards through hands-on activities and encounters.

  • Seeds, Scat and Habitat

    April

    In habitats across the world, animals are dispersing seeds. While hiking through the Zoo, identify and learn about seeds, how they travel and their connection with animals. Make wildflower seed bombs to take home and plant in your backyard!

  • Built to Survive

    February, Ages 9 to 12

    Focusing on a specific animal, we will take a closer look at how animals survive and adapt to their surroundings. Learn more about Zookeeping careers as we design and build animal enrichment.

  • Microscopic March

    March

    In this microscopic lesson, we will begin with dip netting, collecting and identifying aquatic animals and peek into the world of microscopic organisms. Students will learn how to use a microscope and try their hand at identification.

  • Built to Survive

    February, Ages 5 to 8

    How do animals survive? Using both readings and outdoor exploration we will discover adaptations that protect them, allow them to stay warm, and more.
