Animal outreach programs are available within Minot and the surrounding area. Outreach programs may be formal or informal. The focus is “hands on” animal encounters with the goal of educating participants of: wildlife understanding, physical characteristics and adaptations of the selected species, and conservation awareness of issues facing their wild counterparts.
Outreach visits may be custom designed to fit your needs. Our programs are suited for all ages. A typical program will include one selected animal encounter provided by one or two staff members. The program is designed to consist of 30-45 minutes (including Q&A, and hands on interaction) for up to 50 participants. A list of outreach animals is provided below. Rules and restrictions may apply depending on weather and the needs of the selected species. Please contact the Zoo’s education department for specific information.
