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.

Summer Camp

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