John Ball Zoo

Traveling Zoo

Have an up-close encounter with live zoo animals in the comfort of your own classroom or facility. Zoo Instructors and/or trained Docents visit classrooms, scout meetings, retirement communities, civic events, and more! Topics vary depending on age of audience (ranges from preschool to adult). We can customize a program for you or you can choose from one of our core education topics.

Our offerings do not lend themselves to large assembly-type programs or to "petting zoo's", but rather to typical class size groups.

Program fees are $95.00 plus an additional $1.00 per mile traveling fee (includes mileage and staffing cost) and $55.00 for each additional consecutive program on the same day.

There are limited opportunities available for this program. Please submit the form below to For questions please contact 616-336-4300
