March is Reading Month!
Making reading wildly fun! This unique Travel Zoo will bring a zoo educator into your classroom to read a selected book and then share one of the zoo's ambassador animals with your students. This program is meant for individual classes so that students can experience an up-close encounter with an animal. Please indicate your top two choices of books when submitting your registration form. The zoo will supply the book and one ambassador animal matched as closely to the animal(s) featured in the book as possible. Program lengths vary depending on book and age of students but are typically 25-45 minutes. We are able to facilitate this program either in person at your facility or virtually.
Program fees are $60 per program and $30 for each additional, consecutive program on the same day, plus an additional $1.00 per mile travel fee (includes mileage and staffing cost) for programs that are held in person.
COVID-19 Guidelines: John Ball Zoo requires all program participants, ages 5 and up, to wear a mask if the program is occurring in an indoor location. Due to the social distancing measures for both staff and animal safety, we are currently operating all programs as ‘No Touch’ experiences. There will also be no mammals used in programs until further notice.
