With Covid-19 limiting our ability to visit your school, our educators along with a few of our animal ambassadors, have come up with an entertaining and educational way to virtually visit you live in your classroom!
“Live Virtual Visits“ brings Como’s Educators into your classroom in real-time allowing your class to interact with the lesson. It enables schools with preschoolers – 12th grade the ability to enjoy the same multi-aged, multi-themed programs that would normally visit schools throughout the year. Programs will include live virtual presentations with our animal ambassadors and a follow-up activity.
Como Park Zoo and Conservatory is pleased to offer LIVE virtual school programs FREE between now and the end of 2021. Please email your choice of offerings below along with the completed registration form and the date and time you are requesting. All programs are live and will have a follow up activity for teachers to use after the program.
