History of Zoo-to-Community

Launched in 2006, the project was conceived in response to the need for improved science literacy and outdoor education experiences, and to encourage students to pursue an interest in veterinary, biological, ecological, and conservation sciences.
By removing barriers to participation through free programs and bus transportation, we are able to reach thousands of students through the Zoo-to-Community program.
