The Washington Park Zoo is dedicated to educating people of all ages about the beauty, wonder, and value of all life on our planet. To do this, we offer a wide variety of programs and activities to allow children and adults to identify closely with animals and plants so that we all have a greater understanding behaviors, diversity and new appreciation for the life around us.
