Our Outreach Programs run between October and April each year.
In these exciting programs, Zoo Society teachers or interpreters visit your classroom with a live animal from the Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park and Zoo and/or biological artefacts (biofacts) from our collection.
We focus the presentation on the ecology of the animal with the aim to reinforce your classroom teachings.
Call 306-975-3395 to book your program.
Outreach fees start at $3.00 per student with a minimum fee of $80.00 per group/class.
Remember, small groups = big experiences! Our programs are designed to accommodate an average sized class (22-28 students). In most cases we cannot accommodate more than one class, at a time, in our environmental programs.
- To increase and maintain awareness and appreciation of animal life.
- To provide an opportunity for people to meet animals at close range.
- To encourage people to think about the natural world and how we fit into the big picture.
The outreach programs run from September 1 to April 30. Availability at other times of the year is subject to interpreter availability.
