Lunch and Learns


Update: Beginning June 1, our Lunch and Learns are going on summer vacation as the zoo prepares to reopen. Thanks for hanging out with us every day and learning about our animals!  You can find our broadcast on Facebook or the Akron Zoo YouTube channel.

When the Akron Zoo was closed to the public, fans could stay engaged with the zoo through our Lunch and Learns!  

Want to see a video or rewatch one you've already viewed? Check out all the Lunch and Learns below by clicking the links. Now that the Akron Zoo is open, make sure you plan a trip to come see all the amazing animals featured in our Lunch and Learn videos.
