Virtual Field Trips

DUE TO 500 SUBMISSIONS IN ONLY 30 MINUTES WE WILL HAVE TO PAUSE OUR VIRTUAL REGISTRATION UNTIL WE CAN SORT OUT HOW MANY SPOTS ARE REMAINING.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SUPPORTING OUR WILDLIFE CENTER!

We are excited to announce our FREE Virtual Field Trips!

Our staff and animals miss coming out to visit all of the students so we have designed virtual presentations which not only incorporate curriculum based topics but also portions of our onsite field trips AND of course meeting an Animal Ambassador!

Our WILD Virtual Presentations are 45-60 minutes in length. They cater to everyone's learning style by providing visual, auditory and kinesthetic learning opportunities.  Students will find themselves moving and grooving, participating in discussions and an interactive animal meet and greet.
