Welcome to Wildlife Zooniversity
at Dickerson Park Zoo.

Wildlife Zooniversity magnifies the amazing world of animals for all ages–offering classes for tots to adults. Students will learn through an inquiry-based educational approach designed to create curiosity, encourage discovery, and inspire conservation action.

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.

Wildlife Zooniversity 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.
