Homeschool Days

We invite homeschool groups to register now for Homeschool Days at Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle!




2017 February Homeschool Day 

Monday, February 13th, 2017 : The Ecosystem Connection

Join us for a day at Woodland Park Zoo exploring the many wonders of how animals, plants and people are connected with one another in ecosystems. Every single animal that exists needs help from three sources: plants, other animals, and the non-living landscape. Homeschool students and parents are invited to the zoo for a day of hands-on activities and exciting experiences to explore these interconnections. There are self-directed discovery stations, structured learning opportunities for various ages, and self-guided explorations of zoo grounds. Come explore and build on your students’ natural curiosity about animals!

All activities included with zoo admission.

Advanced registration required to receive the discounted school visit rate ($6.50 per person).
