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. The program includes a visit into the Zoo or South Mountain Reservation as weather permits. The curriculum is repeated throughout the week; choose 1 session to attend per week. Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday afternoons from 1pm to 4pm. This is an in-person, drop-off program. Face coverings are required.
