Educational Wildlife Programs

Programs feature interactive, live animal demonstrations tailored to fit the ages of participants.  All programs can be customized to fulfill specific curriculum content.  Popular with school groups, the 30-45 minute educational animal programs are also a hit with groups of all ages.

Bring your group to the Zoo to participate in a program, or have the Racine Zoomobile transport our animal ambassadors to you!  (Our animals will travel up to one hour in Southeastern Wisconsin and Northern Illinois.)
