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. Programs include a visit to the South Mountain Reservation, Reservoir, or Zoo as weather permits. February and March programs will be held in-person on Saturdays and Wednesdays, from 1pm to 4pm. 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. Appropriate face coverings are mandatory. Wonders of the Wild fee is $30/person.
