Zoo Teens is an elite group of zoo volunteers, ages 13-17, interested in animals and conservation.  The deadline for applying to the 2017 Zoo Teen program has passed. Please email Anne Grinnan to be added to the list to receive information about the 2018 program when it becomes available next spring.

Cox Nature Exchange allows guests to bring in a natural object of interest, learn more about its place in the natural world and select something else to continue the journey toward understanding and respect for all things found in the world around us. More information about Cox Nature Exchange is available here.

Outreach programs are formal zoo education offerings for school-age children and teens, created and presented by trained zoo staff. Each program blends environmental education with science, math, language arts, reading, fine arts and even history to provide teachers with resources and information that are both educational and fun.
