Our Outreach Programs run between October and April each year. Outreach visits can be arranged in July and August as well if works with summer camp schedules. We do not take the zoo animal collection out to large community group events. Outreach is intended for small groups.
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 are $80.00 per group/class. (maximum 30 students please) Please advise us if your class is larger to see if the animal we are bringing out can handle a larger group setting.
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 and animal availability.
