Zoo Education Broadens the Realization of Animals (Z.E.B.R.A.)

Z.E.B.R.A. Classes at Dickerson Park Zoo open the amazing world of animals to children from tots to teens. Encourage curiosity, appreciation and wonder with up-close animal encounters where students learn through hands-on activities and experiences, crafts, stories and games, all designed to instill a lifelong love of learning and animal conservation and care. All education classes take place in the Gaska Family Education Wing building located a short drive from the front gate. See map for details.  Registration for classes closes at noon one day prior to date of the class to allow teachers time to prepare.

Z.E.B.R.A. Classes Refund Policy: programs canceled by the registrant up to 48 hours in advance will receive a full refund. If canceled between 24 and 48 hours prior to the class, registrants will receive a 50% refund. If canceled less than 24 hours before the scheduled class, no refund will be issued. 


Encourage a love of learning and connection with animals—classes and camps available for tots to teens.
