Animal Ark hosts field trips at our facility north of Reno April through October annually to grades K-12. Trained Wildlife Educators teach concepts such as ecology, biology, animal behavior, and geology!
Our Wildlife Educators look forward to visiting your classroom to teach your students a variety of wildlife-related topics through fun, interactive, multimedia presentations! The programs are available during the winter months.
Animal Ark has partnered with a consultant, Jim Flanders, who specializes in STEM philosophy and curriculum development. He is a teacher in Winnemucca, Nevada, and incorporates wildlife learning experiences in his classroom. He has developed a variety of educational activities designed for any teacher who would like to incorporate these exercises, either before or after a class field trip to Animal Ark.
Interview with a Keeper
This is a new, flexible program that will help continue the learning experience after your Animal Ark Outreach or Field Trip! Perhaps you might have your students learn about a specific animal which lives at Animal Ark – have them interview an Animal Ark team member! We can Skype into your classroom to answer your students’ questions! Contact our Education Coordinator at [email protected] or 775-970-3431 for more information.
