Zoo to You

NOW you can experience the Henry Vilas Zoo in a whole new way – virtually!

Sign up for a Zoom the Zoo program today, limited availability.


All Zoo to You Education Programs are canceled through August 31st

Bring the zoo animals to your group with our “Zoo to You” outreach program!

We travel Tuesday – Friday (10 a.m. – 2 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 one- hour presentation is $125, and features live animals and a variety of age-appropriate content, including animal classification, adaptations, predator-prey relationship, natural history, and behavior.

Please email to schedule your visit today! Our normal hours are 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Please allow a minimum of two weeks advance notice for scheduling.

Please note:

  • Presentation staff is scheduled specifically for individual presentations. 24-hour notice of cancellation is required and greatly appreciated.
  • Animals cannot be presented in food preparation or dining areas.
  • There are seasonal temperature restrictions.
  • This program travels to public venues in Dane County only; we are unable to present this program at private residences.
