Does your child dream of becoming a Zoo veterinarian?
Your child will travel behind-the-scenes to the Zoo’s state of the art, NEW Animal Health Center for a day in the life of a Zoo Vet experience. Participants will utilize the Freeport-McMoRan Education Gallery to view the surgery, treatment and pharmacy rooms of the Animal Health Center. They’ll experience first-hand the importance of math and science in diagnosing and treating animal ailments through hands-on activity stations that are based on real-life zoo scenarios. After they’ve finished helping all of their patients, they’ll earn their Dr. Zoo certificate! Register your child today by clicking on the desired date below.
Parents, please plan on dropping your child off for this program.
Drop-off and pick-up will be at the front of the Zoo.
Designed for 8-12 year-olds
Parents, please note: reading, writing, and math skills must be at or above a 3rd-grade level to fully participate in the activities during this program.
$15 for Zoo Member children per class
$20 for Non-Member children per class
Dr. Zoo will sell out, so reserve your space today!
Program participants are welcome to sign up for multiple classes, however, the programming for each class will remain the same each session.
