Learn how to identify birds, collect data on native box turtles, learn frog calls, use quadrat squares to survey native wildflowers, and more! Teens will develop public speaking skills, discover conservation science, and build leadership abilities. In Edventure Academy, we’re learning, leading, and saving the planet!

With a guardian and before their scheduled session, each registered student must view an orientation video. A link to the video will be provided in an informational email once registration is complete. The email will be sent to you from the education department and is separate from your payment confirmation and program ticket. The information email will also include all paperwork that must be filled out prior to the beginning of the session. Students must bring this paperwork with them on the first day of class in order to participate.
Students who fail to bring their paperwork or who have not yet watched the orientation video will be charged a $15 individual orientation fee. Students may not begin participation in class until they have watched the orientation video and submitted all paperwork. Students will not make up class time missed for their individual orientation session.
Face masks will be required for all students for the duration of the program. Students should bring a water bottle with their name on it as there is currently no access to water fountains in the zoo. Students will be dropped off and picked up outside the Cargill Learning Center. Students will be asked to complete a short wellness questionnaire and temperature check prior to entering class.
Each person who attends class must have a ticket. Space is limited. Tickets will be scanned at the door on the first day of class. All classes take place rain or shine. All reservations are final. Tickets may not be copied or resold and may be used only once. No cancellations, refunds, rain checks, or exchanges; tickets will not be replaced if lost, stolen or unused.
