Safari Edventure Day

Friday, October 4, 2019

School's can join Sunset Zoo's education department and AZA-accredited Zoos statewide for hands-on workshops throughout the Zoo focused on science and culture. For youth in grades K-6; contact Sunset Zoo's Education Department for more information. Registration required.

During Safari Edventure Day, your class will engage in a variety of age-appropriate activities that include storytelling, hands-on science experiments, live animal encounters and conservation projects. Every class participates in six, 20-minute workshops assigned on a specific, easy-to-follow route throughout the Zoo. Every class will also enjoy scheduled time to tour the Zoo at their leisure.

How the Day Works
  • Classes are assigned a schedule of workshops 
  • Classes receive an identifying animal to help in keeping everyone together and SAFE! 
  • A zoo-full of trained volunteers 
  • Enthusiastic workshop presenters
Have You Been Before?
Not a problem! Each year Sunset Zoo recruits presenters that bring something unique to the event, and encourage those returning presenters to update and change their station from last year.

  • USD 383 & Manhattan Schools:
    Admission is FREE. $15 program fee per class.
