Don't miss the chance to enhance your wildlife understanding and experiences through the Zoo's special interactive programs.  If you are part of a school, church, business, civic organization, service club, the Zoo has a program you'll be wild about!

The Racine Zoo's educational services are an integral part of our commitment to conservation. The Zoo offers engaging programs, exhibits, and material that educate the children of our community. They will gain knowledge and motivation about wildlife, feeling more connected to animals and to take action and preserve the natural world.
