Utica Zoo Education Department

Welcome to the Utica Zoo Education Department! Our staff of Zoo Educators are focused on providing high-quality educational programming while supporting the Utica Zoo’s mission of creating unique experiences and fostering an appreciation of wildlife through Education, Conservation, and Recreation. Our wide array of educational programs, classes and camps offer Zoo visitors of all ages an opportunity to learn more about the animals of the Utica Zoo, as well as develop an appreciation and understanding of wild animals from all over the world. By developing this appreciation at a young age, we hope to help reinforce the next generation of wildlife activists and conservationists.
