Education Programs

Education is an integral part of the Rosamond Gifford Zoo’s mission. Our education programs offer fun, interactive educational experiences for all ages – from infants to the young at heart! Whether you are an individual, a family, a teacher or group leader, we offer programs designed to meet your needs and interests — and connect you with the natural world.

Reservations are required for all programs. There is limited space in each program so please register early.  A minimum number of registrants is required to run a program.
