The wildest classroom in town

Join this school of fish!

Have you ever felt the smooth scales of a New World python, listened for the flight of an owl, or examined the bottom of a gecko's foot? At the Memphis Zoo, we connect people with wildlife using experiences such as these in everything that we do. With a focus on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in conjunction with conservation, the education department provides engaging and educational programs for children and adults. There are resources for school and homeschool educators to make learning relevant and exciting for students. Camps, Zoo Snoozes and Professional Development programs round out our exceptional offerings. Experience learning at the Memphis Zoo!
