Join The Greenville Zoo educational department in special classes!

Zookeeping Kids is for kids in 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade. Classes are designed to inspire the next generation of zookeepers! Students (3rd-5th graders) will experience what it is like to work at the zoo through games, activities, experiments, chats with zookeepers, and up-close animal encounters. The program length is 2 hours.
