Virtual Programming

You are very important to us and we want to stay connected! During this unprecedented time, we have created NEW ways to engage with our visitors, members and community. 

Virtual field trips

An innovative and unique way for students to interact in real time with animals and staff at the BPZOO without leaving the house! Virtual Field Trips are interactive, multimedia, and employ the use of live animals, live exhibit footage and/or Science On a Sphere® demonstrations to provide real world context to science lessons.

Virtual Party

We believe every child’s birthday should be special, no matter where they are! Schedule a Virtual Birthday Party with the Zoo for you and as many guests as you would like. We will make the invites and set-up the Zoom video link; all you have to do is send them to your guests, and the party is ON(line)! During your 40 minute party our educator will lead the group in an at-home craft, introduce the group to the animal guest of your choice and of course sing Happy Birthday with a dance party!
