EcosySTEM Explorers (formerly Edventure Academy)
Education is an integral part of the Rosamond Gifford Zoo’s mission. Our education programs offer fun, interactive educational experiences for all ages – from infants to the young at heart! Whether you are an individual, a family, a teacher or group leader, we offer programs designed to meet your needs and interests — and connect you with the natural world.
Want to try EcosySTEM Explorers, but your child is too young? We've designed these new programs tailored just for little ones, aged 12 months to 3 years. Each themed class includes animal biofacts, nature-themed sensory play, a story and an opportunity to see an animal up close! Young ones will explore with their senses as well as develop language and motor skills in the process during this early learning adventure.
Kids' Night Out
Looking for a night out? Drop your kids off at the zoo to party like an animal! Kids will enjoy pizza upon arrival, meet animals up close, tour the zoo after hours, make crafts and play games throughout the night.
Join the Education Team for a five-week learning series that provides a unique opportunity for you and your child to learn more about the animals at the Rosamond Gifford Zoo. This small group class will consist of stations for learning, experiencing, and creating and utilize our outdoor classroom, weather permitting!
