Zoo to You


Bring zoo animals to your group with our ‘Zoo to You’ outreach programs!

We travel Wednesday – Friday (10 a.m. – 1 p.m.) to public venues within Dane County (some restrictions apply). Learn about our Education Animals and meet them up close! This is a great option for senior centers, nursing homes, grade-level school assemblies, after-school clubs, scout groups, community festivals, and grown-up clubs too!

A presentation up to one hour long is $150, and features live animals and a variety of age-appropriate content, including animal classification, adaptations, predator-prey relationship, natural history, and behavior.

Assembly programs to larger groups, and program locations farther from Henry Vilas Zoo have an additional cost.

Please allow a minimum of two weeks advance notice for scheduling.
