Education

Sequoia Park Zoo offers a variety of educational resources, events and services. We are committed to inspiring conservation of the natural world by instilling wonder, respect and passion for wildlife, and our education programs do just that!

School Field Trips and Teacher Resources

Thinking of organizing a school field trip to Sequoia Park Zoo? Check out our discounted admission rates for schools, age-appropriate Zoo scavenger hunts, Redwood EdVenture curriculum, and Watershed Heroes activities for your class!

Zoo Camps & Educational Opportunities

Throughout the year, the Zoo hosts a variety of education day camps and fun activities for children aged 5-11 years plus overnight camps for families. Each activity is designed thematically to provide age-appropriate fun and learning experiences about different wildlife, environmental, and conservation topics.

Research Opportunities

Do you need to study a specific species for a class project, poster presentation, master’s thesis or similar research project? Sequoia Park Zoo encourages and supports the involvement of staff, universities, interns, and students in conducting research projects and endeavors to aid that research in cooperation with the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), international conservation organizations, and specific zoological initiatives. We value research on a diverse and broad array of topics and species. Research projects are not required to share the zoo’s research operational goals, but all research conducted at the zoo must be approved in advance and adhere to our research policies. For more information, download the program guidelines and application or contact the SPZ Research Coordinator, Ruth Mock at

Super Salmon and the Watershed Heroes

At Party for the Planet 2015, we launched our first ever educational comic book, Super Salmon and the Watershed Heroes! The comic supplements the educational experience we have created through the Watershed Heroes neighborhood of exhibits, which includes our North American River Otter habitat, the salmon pools, and the McLean Foundation Raptor Aviary.
