Educator Workshops

Brevard Zoo’s education department offers 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. The goal of these workshops is to give educators training, local resources and new teaching tools for use in the classroom.
