Homeschool programs are a great way to enrich your homeschooling education while learning about animals, nature, conservation and more. For homeschool families, these programs are great alternatives to our School & Group Programs, which are designed for larger groups and subject to a minimum program fee. Join other homeschooled students online or at the Zoo!
