Education Program Scholarships

The Sacramento Zoo strives to provide an outdoor educational experience to children of all ages regardless of their economic level. We offer many ways for children to foster an understanding and appreciation of wildlife through year-round field trips, ZooMobiles which bring the Zoo to your classroom and summer camp. In an effort to continue to reach this goal, we are proudly offering grants to qualifying schools and families to allow them to experience the Zoo.
