Can't make it for a field trip? No problem - we'll come to you! Outreach programs offer a convenient way to meet live animals, participate in group activities, and discover nature in your schoolyard. Programs are offered year-round, but we suggest outreach visits December - March. Off-site outreach program pricing is here.
