Don't Mess with Texas!
Protecting Native Wildlife

Put on your boots and prepare to take a hike on the wild side of Texas!  In Don't Mess with Texas! - Protecting Native Wildlife, students ages 10-12 will learn about species big, tall, large and small that call Texas home and how we can help preserve them and their habitat.

You'll have questions and we'll find answers! Whether it’s “Is that snake venomous?” or “Does that possum have rabies?," students will learn how to find information and how to support our native species. 

 

Among other things you'll learn how to identify local snakes, explore the hard work that goes into raccoon and possum rescues, and understand what it takes to be a park ranger!

So... You Want to Be a Zookeeper? 
 

Are you raising a child that loves animals and is thinking about pursuing a career in animal sciences?  Join us at The Learning Zoo!

 

In So... You Want to Be a Zookeeper? students 10 to 12 will explore the process to become a professional zookeeper or animal conservationist. Volunteering, college classes, and internships are some of the steps toward a professional career caring for animals in a zoo, wildlife sanctuary, or other animal conservatories. We'll explore the lives of people like Steve Irwin, Jane Goodall, and others and see how their careers developed.

 

Working side-by-side with Zookeeper Drew, students will learn what it takes to be a great zookeeper.
