(ages 14 - 17)

A lifetime of doing what you love and loving what you do can begin with a small step. If you’ve ever dreamed about working with animals or in a zoo, this workshop could be the start of your amazing journey. It takes a village to run a zoo and in this special program, teens will discover just how many different career opportunities a zoo holds. This educator-led workshop will include a sneak peek into the secret life of zookeepers, zoo veterinary care, exhibit building, enrichment for zoo animals, program animal encounters and more.

This program will include a behind-the-scenes component but no direct interaction with exhibit animals.
