The Zoo in Forest Park & Education Center strives to provide an interactive, informative, exciting way for families and humans both young and old to learn about the animal world and environment around them. Program topics cover most areas of animals in the natural world, celebrate diversity, discuss problems faced in the wild, and encourage a healthier relationship between all earthly inhabitants. Younger children can explore Earth and its inhabitants during summer and winter camps provided by the zoo. Weekly programs at no added cost allow patrons to view specific animals up close to gain a better understanding of the creatures that tickle their curiosity. We also offer Animal Assisted Therapy for children who learn better interaction techniques through such venues. In order for us to better serve the public, we must work with the public, and we ask for their assistance in the matter. We would like the world to know the stories of each of these beautiful creatures and to have the opportunity to cherish them as much as we (the keepers) do.
