Zookeepers in Training Ages 9 to 14

A 2 hour class held once a month for 3 months to teach the basics of zookeeping (feeding, making observations, making animal enrichment, etc), then meet up with a zookeeper here who will put them to “work”. This generally means cleaning an animals habitat.

Classes in the past cleaned the elephant barn, scrubbed the hippo pool, made special treats for our animals, visited the zoo hospital and did many other things. This class will do similar "work".
