Bring The Zoo to You – Outreach Senior Safari 

These programs are for audiences such as residents of nursing homes, senior centers, assisted-living facilities, and independent living retirement communities.  Programs celebrate the wonder and awe of animals and inspire individuals to respect, value and care for the natural world.  Live touchable animals, incredible bio-facts (animal skins and bones) and dynamic presenters create one-of-a-kind sensory experiences for the senior community.

Program Information
