The ZooMobile program has brought conservation education outreach programs to the community since 1986.
Programs are offered year-round for people of all ages. The ZooMobile visits schools, daycare centers, preschools, nursing homes, adult day facilities, libraries, colleges, and many other organizations, as well as participates in community events within Rochester and the surrounding areas.
Our mission is to inspire our community to connect, care for, and conserve wildlife and wild places. The Seneca Park Zoo brings this inspiration to you through the ZooMobile, with our ambassador animals and hands-on citizen science projects.
What kind of programs does the ZooMobile provide?
The typical ZooMobile program is a 30 to 60 minute presentation or festival table. These programs focus on different animal groups, adaptations, and conservation messages. Themes can be targeted towards your group’s needs. All programs include the use of live animals and biofacts. Animals vary per program theme. Please refer below for the listing of ambassador animals.
Animals and people both have senses that help them survive. Preschoolers will get in touch with their senses as they explore how animals see, touch, smell, and hear the world around them.
Get to know some animals and meet their opposites. Preschoolers will compare animals and see how different traits help animals survive.
Animals have special coverings like fur and scales that help them survive. Preschoolers will explore different types of animal coverings through animals and biofacts in a fun, hands-on program.
Get an up-close, personal look at how animals move. Preschoolers will hop, slither and crawl just like the animals that they meet.
