About Sophisticated Science Seminars at TBZ

Sophisticated Science Seminars are conservation programs geared towards more adult audiences (ages 13+).  Seminars run throughout the year and span topics such as animal anatomy, habitats and conservation, animal careers, and more. These programs are perfect for those interested in animals, science, conservation, and nature who want to learn something new in a relaxed atmosphere. Additional topics will continue to be developed, so be on the lookout for updates! Topics and descriptions of each can be found below.


Bad Bugs: This program focuses its lens on the state of NJ and five of the most impactful invasive insect species that now call the Garden State home. Join TBZ’s Educators to discover how YOU can help stop invasive species in their tracks. September 12 and October 10 dates now available for registration.
