Inspiring Teens to Enjoy the Outdoors

A new program at our Zoo is bringing middle and high school aged students to area parks and the Zoo to enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, kayaking, seining and more.

Modernizing Our Lagoon Quest Program

After almost 20 years, our Lagoon Quest program needed an update to be an even better resource for local teachers and modernize it for today’s students. Thanks to a grant from Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s Outdoor Fund, our Education staff were able to team up with six local teachers to do so.

Discover Our New Sensory Pathway

A sensory pathway is a tool that incorporates different sensory components, such as touch and movement. Ours encourages visitors to jump and wiggle, and even boasts some pretty cool stingray facts. Complete with ridged seashells, smooth tiles and bumpy stones, anyone can satisfy their tactile desires at this station.  

Inspiring Future Educators
