Program Updates

We are in the process of updating and re-launching our educator professional development offerings at Woodland Park Zoo. We anticipate hosting an Educator Open House this fall to introduce some of these offerings and to gather feedback from educators to help us further shape our professional development programs.



If you have questions or need assistance, or would like to be added to a mailing list to receive information about future professional development opportunities for educators, contact us via email at  We prefer email as many of our staff are currently working remotely.
