Wildlife Action Crew

A program for teens interested in animals and conservation

Wildlife Action Crew is for teenagers interested in animals and conservation.

This is a six-week program that is offered multiple times throughout the school year. This program happens at the Zoo and follows state and local guidelines, including wearing a face mask and maintaining social distancing.
