Elmwood Park Zoo is dedicated to providing the community with varied learning experiences that encourage people to play an active role in wildlife and environmental conservation activities. Through the work of its Education Department, the Zoo strives to empower its guests with the skills, knowledge and resources that may influence them to lead environmentally healthy lives.

In addition to the various exhibits at the Zoo, the Education Department conducts live animal shows and on-site programs, spring and summer camps,  “Zoo-On-Wheels” community outreach programs, and specialty programs for groups such as the Boys and Girls Scouts of America. Each program offers unique learning opportunities and often involves the use of live animals.
