[ARCHIVED] Idaho Falls Zoo Hosts Thanksgiving Break Classes for Kids


Idaho Falls Zoo may be closed for the season, but the education programs are still in full swing! 

Are your kids looking to do something new and different over Thanksgiving break? The zoo is hosting fun and educational two-day classes over the Thanksgiving holiday for children ages 6-13.

Ages 6-9 will explore the relationship between predators and prey. It’s a tough world out there: if you were an animal how successful would you be at finding food, or avoid becoming food?

Ages 10-13 will explore the endangered species that live at the zoo and find out ways they can help save species from extinction.

Classes for both age groups will be held on November 25 and 26 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Visit the Idaho Falls Zoo website for complete program details and registration information.
