Online Zoo Adventure Programs

The El Paso Zoo Education Team will now be offering FREE online Zoo Adventure Programs for your class or group! While we are spending more time inside and at home, it is even more important to connect to nature. Let us engage your students in actively learning about and exploring wildlife and wild places from the comfort of their own homes.

Below are the TEKS-aligned and STEAM-focused programs we currently offer, but we are more than happy to work with you to create a custom program based on the theme or topic your students are interested in learning.

  • Animal Wrappers
  • Our World Our Friend
  • Animals of the Chihuahuan Desert
  • Venomous Animals
  • Biomes of the World
  • Custom Program*

*A common comment from those who have participated in our online Zoo Adventure Programs has been that they would love to see more animals. The curriculum-based programs include up to 3 animals that are chosen to fit the topic of the class. If you are interested in seeing more of our education ambassador animals, we highly recommend signing up for a Custom Program! With a custom program, you can request an animal encounter with up to 3 animals, you can get a sneak peek behind the scenes with one of our exhibit animals, you can interview a Zoo Keeper or Educator, and so much more.

We ask that you have one group leader (this can be a teacher, scout leader, etc.) that will work with us to coordinate your program.

Scroll to the bottom of the page for a brief description of each program.
