Jr. Zookeeper Club at Stone Zoo

Join us this fall for our Jr. Zookeeper club, offered in February, March and April. Each standalone session will focus on a different theme, and participants will get the opportunity to learn about the animals in our Zoo and what it takes to work with them!

Taught by Zoo educators, classes include hands-on activities, discussion, animal encounters and behind-the-scenes experiences. Each program includes progressive program topics focused on teaching students about working with Zoo animals and what paths to take in order to work at the Zoo one day! These programs are offered to children ages 11-13.

Time: 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

Capacity: 12

Price: $65 for members, $75 for non-members

April 8: The History of Zoos

Let’s go back in time! Where did it all begin? How have zoos improved to be where they are now? How can we still improve? We will try our best to answer all of these questions and more when we learn about the History of Zoos!
