We want to the uniqueness of plants and animals of the Chuhuahuan Desert, and thus, we offer several events with this in mind.
Zoo Camp is one of the most popular events at the Zoo. Check out the Zoo Camp sections below.
We are happy to take programs to children and adult groups. Check out what we offer.
Fieldstrips are a wonderful way for your group to see and learn from Docents about our plants and animals. See the Fieldstrip information below.
We have numerous PowerPoints for you to choose from. Check out the titles from the PowerPoints section below.
Zoo Camp is a one-week day camp that is for children that have a love and curiosity for the Chuhuahuan Desert. Two sessions are held in July and open to children who have completed grades 1st through 6th. The children must be able to read.
Zoo Camp daily includes singing songs, a walk to different parts of the Zoo, crafts, a snack, an educational program , hands on activities, and a guest speaker. his is a long form text area designed for your content that you can fill up with as many words as your heart desires. You can write articles, long mission statements, company policies, executive profiles, company awards/distinctions, office locations, shareholder reports, whitepapers, media mentions and other pieces of content that don’t fit into a shorter, more succinct space.
On Friday, the children present a short program demonstrating what they have done that week.
