The Zoo is nationally recognized for its education programs that spark interest in conservation, science and the great outdoors. Groups take planning, but we have lots of resources available to help your day go smoothly. Fall and spring programs fill quickly, so be sure to register now!
With more than 900 animals representing 195 species from around the world, there’s a lot to learn at the Zoo! Click here to view our EdZOOcation field trip programs featuring curricula aligned with K–12 Florida Standards.
Not part of a school group? No worries—you can still participate in the same unique educational experiences. Our programs bring science to life through enthusiastic instructors, hands-on activities and live animal ambassadors.
To register for a program, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 321.254.9453 x219. All groups must register two weeks in advance. Programs require at least 15 participants and can accommodate up to 35 guests.
A letter of confirmation with the details of your booked program will be mailed after registration. You must retain a copy of this letter for your records and present upon arrival at the Zoo to facilitate admission. If multiple classes are visiting the Zoo, be sure confirmation information has been distributed to all teachers.
Given the popularity of our programs, we reserve the right to cancel or adjust the length of a program for late group arrivals. If you are running behind, please make every effort to notify us at 321.254.9453 x219 or x489.
We offer a series of workshops open to area teachers, scout leaders and informal educators. These workshops are offered in conjunction and partnership with the Coastal Marine Institute, Marine Youth Services, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, Brevard County Solid Waste Management Department and the Indian River chapter of the National Audubon Society. Please contact our education registrar at email@example.com for group workshop information or click here for more information.
