Como Residency Program
The Como residency program is designed to be a high-dosage program that connects elementary school classrooms with the plants and animals of Como Park Zoo and Conservatory. Students learn about different biomes and have the chance to apply the skills needed for STEM focused careers. We offer two different program formats to reach schools throughout Minnesota and thanks to the generous funding from the Legacy Amendment Arts and Cultural Heritage Grant the residency program is FREE (including transportation).
Senior Strolls & Sunset Senior Strolls – Advanced Registration Required
This is a special time set aside just for our 55-and-up aged friends. This is an opportunity to visit the Zoo and Conservatory for a leisurely walk before the crowds as well as special activities and guests. This event is a great opportunity for Seniors to enjoy a free event that encourages being active and social with some adult learning to spice it up.
Sensory Friendly Mornings – Advanced Registration Required
Como Park Zoo and Conservatory is an energetic, colorful place full of sensory stimuli, and we know this environment can be overwhelming for some guests. These are some ways that Como strives to provide a positive, welcoming experience for every visitor.
