Turtle Back Zoo is an amazing classroom! Our Wonders of the Wild program offers students an opportunity to participate in supplementary science and nature-themed programs and projects that facilitate scientific literacy and life-long environmental stewardship.
Available to students ages 6 -12. The program includes a visit to the Zoo or South Mountain Reservation as weather permits. Classes are on Saturday from 1 pm to 3 pm. This is an in-person, drop-off program. Face coverings are required indoors and during close animal encounters but not outdoors.
