EcoClub will also have 3 extra optional trips during the year that the students and their families can participate in. We are thinking of doing one in the fall, spring, and summer. They may be something like scheduling a float trip on a Saturday in the summer or a beach cleanup on a Saturday during the spring. The zoo will not be hosting these events nor will we be paying for them, but our education staff will be there so it will be a great time to come together as a club for other fun, conservation-oriented activities. Information on the fall trip will be updated soon.

Parents do not need to stay for the meetings, as you can simply drop your child off at 5:15 and pick them up at 6:15. Please R.S.V.P. before attending. You may join at any time during the year.

Please do not hesitate to contact the Education Department with any questions!
