Zoo Programs

The Lake Superior Zoo offers year-round educational programs designed to connect children and families with animals and the natural world. Some of our programs are designed for children to be dropped off at the zoo. Others offer opportunities for parents/caregivers and children to learn together as a family.

For information about programs for schools, day cares, scouts and youth groups, please visit our Field Trips page.
