Conservation Nation

CALLING ALL FAMILIES! Our Conservation Nation Needs You!

Running for its second year, the Racine Zoo welcomes all families to join together with the mission of conservation! Conservation Nation is an eight week program that is fun, free, and family friendly. This program will teach your family about the harmful issues our planet faces and how we can help! Through animal encounters, activities, and at home challenges your family will learn together, grow together, and conserve together!

Families will have a chance to complete take-home conservation activities to earn behind the scenes encounters!
