ZooMobile for Classrooms & Groups

Let us bring live animals to your classroom with the Sacramento Zoo’s ZooMobile! We can visit schools within 50 miles of the Zoo, or no more that 1 hour’s drive. Your classroom must be at a school, community center or library; we cannot take the ZooMobile to a private home. We will do up to three programs per day, in the same presentation room.
