Wonders of the Wild!
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. That’s not all! We are excited to introduce our partnership with the Sri Lanka Wildlife Conservation Society, a wonderful global conservation organization that will participate in our programs every week, providing insight into their many conservation projects via live stream and in-person presentations.
Available to students ages 6-12. January/early February programs include a visit to the South Mountain Reservation or Reservoir as weather permits. January/early February programs will be held in-person on Saturdays and Wednesdays, from 1pm to 3pm. The Saturday and Wednesday curricula are repeated within the same week, so only register for one of the days so you’re not repeating the same program. There will be no visits to the zoo during January; the zoo is closed to the public. Appropriate face coverings are mandatory. January Wonders of the Wild fee is $30/person.
