Partners In Conservation

Supporting conservation education

The health of our city, region, and planet depend on the next generation of environmental stewards. Supporting, teaching, and inspiring youth to defend our environment depends on you.

Become a Partner In Conservation today and help foster the next generation of youth ready to protect – and change – the world.

Our Partners in Conservation memberships support Seneca Park Zoo's education programs.

You can help create the next generation of environmental stewards.

Eco-education opportunities from 18 months to 18 years.

Last year, over 16,000 children and teens learned to take action for wildlife and wild places through Seneca Park Zoo Society education programs. From ages 18 months to 18 years, participants are nurtured through age-specific classes and camps that introduce kids to knowledge about wildlife at home and around the world. Every educational offering gives kids hope and shows them ways to support species survival, and help prepare our region’s youth for emerging green industries and vocations that place environmental health at the center.

No other organization in the Greater Rochester Region offers the same breadth of conservation-focused teaching.

Seneca Park Zoo offers more than 100 education programs each year.
