Outreach Program

Our Outreach Program runs between October and April each year.
In this exciting program, Zoo Society teachers or interpreters visit your classroom with a live animal
from the Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park and Zoo or biological artefacts (biofacts) from our collection.
We focus the presentation on the ecology of the animal with the aim to reinforce your classroom teachings.
Call 306-975-3395 to book your program.  Click here for more information on our Outreach Program
Outreach fees start at $2.50 per student with a minimum fee of $70.00 per group. 

Please note: we no longer have a supply of owl pellets to loan.  Check out our owl pellet program.

Zoo School

Through unique experiences provided only at Zoo School, students will learn that all living things,
including themselves, depend upon the interrelationships among plants and animals.
This week-long, out-of-school experience is designed to be a stand-alone unit, or one that will fit within the
scope of grade four curriculums in many subject areas. Call 975-3395 for more information.


Zoo Club

Important notice regarding Zoo Club: 2014-15 is bringing changes to our special Zoo Club program.  We are finding that the new lunch-hour schedule at most schools does not allow sufficient time in our schedule to conduct this program.  This, combined with our lack of funding for the program, means we are re-evaluating methods on how to best deliver this worthwhile program to schools.  If you are interested in becoming part of our Zoo Club program please contact the Saskatoon Zoo Society (306-975-3395 or zoosociety@sasktel.net) to discuss an option that will work best to fit our needs and your school's needs. 

The Zoo Club program runs in a limited number of schools each year.  Enrolment is on a first-come basis.

This is a special lunch-hour program designed to be incorporated into your school’s environment or
ecology club. The program runs from October to April and consists of seven monthly appearances by a
Zoo Society interpreter and an animal ambassador to discuss a variety of ecological principles associated
with the creature.
