Kids aren't the only ones having fun at the zoo! These just-for-teachers nights will allow you to network with educators from around the state, share ideas and brainstorm a plan of action that encourages students to get involved. Busch Gardens' Education staff facilitates standards-based, interdisciplinary activities and provides take-home curriculum. Sleepover choices include:
As the lights go down, come with us to investigate the park after dark. See firsthand the amazing transformation of nocturnal species—and visit a few animals with some very special traits face-to-face.
Eco Invaders introduces you to some of the world’s most wanted…INVADERS! You’ll apprehend the suspects and reap the rewards: knowledge about what it takes to preserve and maintain a well-balanced ecosystem. Get to know invasive species; discover how they get here and how they cause problems, and then invent solutions to contain them.
