Zoology is the scientific study of animals. Our planet is teeming with life making it is easy to overlook its vast variety. Learn how scientists classify animals and characteristics that qualify a living thing as an animal.
My Tiger Jungle
Maybe you live in the city, the country, or maybe you live in between. No matter where you live, you will find amazing bugs, birds and animals nearby. In this adventure, scouts will learn about animals that live near their homes and here at the zoo.
Digging in the Past
Take a step back in time. Can you imagine birds the size of airplanes flying over your head? Can you picture what it would be like to run into a big, bad T. rex in the woods? Dinosaurs and other giant creatures lived and died out millions of years ago. In this adventure use your Wolf brain to test your knowledge on different dinosaurs and learn about the role a paleontologist plays in uncovering the past.
Fur, Feathers and Ferns
In this adventure you will explore the world of mammals, birds, plants and more. You will learn more about where wild creatures live and how you can do your part to help their survival.
Into the Wild
Do you wonder what makes the howling, hooting, whistling, and humming sounds you hear at night? Do you wonder where flocks of birds are going when they fly overhead? When you go “into the wild,” you will begin to understand some of the mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and insects that live with us day and night and how they contribute to the world in which we live.
Visit the Zoo and learn about different ways you can give back by protecting nature.
Bugs help us in lots of cool ways. Scouts will explore the world of insects and learn how they help the earth and people, too!
You learn about your world in many ways: seeing, hearing, feeling, smelling, and tasting. You use your senses all the time, even when you don’t know it!
Imagine meeting a primate or kicking up dust with a kangaroo. Scouts will learn more about wild animals and their wild habitats and how we can help them survive.
Night has captured human imagination since the dawn of time. But with modern-day electricity, it's easy to overlook the mysteries and beauty of the world after the sun goes down. Turn out the lights, tune in your senses, and step out into the night at the Zoo.
As the sun sets, many creatures of the night come alive! Plunge into darkness and discover a whole new world of nocturnal animals. Join us on our journey in learning about their special adaptations, habitats, and their role in the ecosystem.
There's no place like home and lucky for us we don't have to travel far to discover our natural world in our own backyard. Learn about the wildlife of one of the most biodiverse areas in the country without having to leave the zoo!
Who's endangered and why? Become heroes of the globe, learning the different reasons many species and habitats are endangered and why caring for animals at the Zoo is important to the survival of species in the wild. Experience the nighttime side of the Zoo as we explore cause and effect, human impact and what we can do to help our planet!
