Bring the Zoo to You

Bring the zoo animals to your group with our "Zoo to You" outreach program! We travel Tuesday-Friday (10am-2pm) at public venues within Dane County (some restrictions apply)! Learn about our Education Animals and meet them up close! Weekends may be available by request. This is a great option for senior centers, nursing homes, grade-level school assemblies, after school clubs, scout groups, community festivals, and grown-up clubs too! 1 hour presentations ($125) feature live animals and a variety of age-appropriate content including: animal classification, adaptations, predator-prey relationship, natural history, and behavior.

Presentation staff are scheduled specifically for individual presentations. 24 hour notice of cancellation is required and greatly appreciated.

Please email education@vilaszoo.org to schedule your visit today! Our normal hours are 10am-2pm, Tuesday-Friday. Please contact us if you are interested in availability outside of this time frame. (Please allow a minimum of two weeks advance notice for scheduling.)

Please note:

  • animals cannot be presented in food preparation or dining areas
  • there are seasonal temperature restrictions
  • this program travels to public venues in Dane County only; we are unable to present this program at private residences
