Up for EDventure?
Looking for a wild experience for your students, scout troop or family? The North Carolina Zoo offers a variety of engaging education programs, to enrich learning about animals, the need for healthy habitats, and actions people can take to help preserve our planet’s natural resources.
EDventure programs last 30–45 minutes and cost $50 each. They are designed for a maximum of 30 students or other type of group. Programs include a look at gorillas (kindergarten–fifth grade), chimpanzees, and elephants and rhinos (kindergarten–eighth grade).
The animal programs discuss behavior, communication and much more, with surprises in store. For example, gorillas, the largest of all apes and scary to many, are revealed to be gentle giants, actually one of the most peaceful animals in the tropical forest.
The zoo requires at least two weeks’ notice for these programs. For more info or to schedule a program, contact the NC Zoo Education School Programs Office at (336) 879-7715; toll free (800) 488-0444, ext. 7715; or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org (it’s best to cc email@example.com).
