SCHOOL PROGRAMS

An educational program from Como Park Zoo and Conservatory will enhance any curriculum! We have the ability to provide your group with a fun and interactive presentation at your site or at Como (travel restrictions apply). Each program uses a variety of sensory aids, including live plants, animals or other fun interactive components to enhance the learning experience.

45 – 60 minutes, unless otherwise noted

Student Limit per Program

Maximum 50, unless otherwise noted; Cost over maximum student limit: $5/student up to 5 over max. $20 per student beyond 5 over max.

On-site Program Chaperone Limit

Due to space limitations, we have a limit of 15 chaperones* allowed in each classroom during our school programs. If you have over 15 chaperones per program, we encourage those willing to enjoy some coffee at our café, or to explore the Zoo and Conservatory during the program time.

*Exceptions will be made for groups with special needs.
