EDUCATOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
Courses are open to all educators and other professionals. These courses are presented as part of the Advanced Inquiry Program Master’s degree (AIP). Students enrolled in AIP or other students taking the courses for credit will be given priority enrollment. If there is space in the course, Washington state-approved clock hours will be available to those participants not taking the course for credit. The courses are held at Woodland Park Zoo (unless otherwise noted) and include presentations by guest speakers, tours of zoo grounds, group discussions and hands-on activities.

Educator Appreciation Day
Come explore the zoo for a day - on us!
On Saturday, June 3rd we invite preK-20 formal and informal educators to visit the zoo for free and receive half-priced admission for one adult guest!
Please check in at the South Entrance between 9:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. for your ticket into the zoo. You are welcome to stay until closing time but check-in will end at 3:00 p.m. Please bring something to verify your employment as an educator.
We would love for you to use this day to both enjoy the zoo and explore opportunities to include the zoo in your curriculum.
There will be a variety of events including Bear Affair: Living Northwest Conservation Day, along with all of our summer programming (starts May 1st).
Please contact the registrar with any questions (email@example.com or 206.548.2424).
We look forward to seeing you!
