Learning Opportunities

Zoo visitors will find opportunities to learn throughout our zoo from our educational signs and touch and talk encounters. Visitors will learn some fascinating information and will also be able to get a hands on experience. And of course, observing our animals is an educational experience in itself.

Program offerings vary seasonally, so be sure to check back occasionally to see what educational opportunities are available.


If you want to go beyond your visit to the zoo, consider booking one of our specially designed educational programs. *We understand there are many restrictions right now with the pandemic, but our team is committed to providing safe educational program options within the guidelines provided by local authorities.*


Parents with school aged children looking for an unique learning experience, may enroll them in our spring break or summer camp program here at the Hutchinson Zoo.
