July 6 – 10: Wildlife Conservation

Is your teen passionate about saving wildlife? Do they love finding new ways to help out the planet? Here at Elmwood Park Zoo, it is our mission to inspire active participation in conservation. This summer, for the first time, we are offering an incredible new experience to engage teens in wildlife conservation. This week long workshop will be an introduction into the world of animal conservation. Teens will learn how zoos are making a worldwide impact on global conservation and will attend a field trip to a local conservation area to participate in a hands-on conservation project. Between exciting animal encounters, S.T.E.M challenges, and science experiments, your teen will leave this week with the knowledge and the confidence to save the planet!

 

August 10- 14: Zookeeping 101

Is your teen interested in working with animals one day? Join us for a week long, in-depth workshop focused on the ins and outs of being a zookeeper. Meet professionals in the field and get hands on experience working side by side with zookeepers and education keepers. This experience will have your teen discovering a different facet of zookeeping each day, with S.T.E.M based workshops, hands-on zookeeping activities, and exclusive animal encounters.  This week also includes a field trip to another local zoological facility. Sign up today for this brand new adventure!
