Teen Enrichment Programs

Do you need something that will pique your teen’s interest? While attending “Teen Enrichment at the Zoo”, the students will learn about what enrichment is and how the zoo uses it with our animals. Students will help provide enrichment to a few zoo animals and even help by doing observations on how the zoo’s exhibit animals play with the enrichment the students make them. This program may include a zoo tour, animal encounters and more!
