Only three spaces left in Session F!

All classes meet 1:30-3:30 p.m. in the African Huts.

Parents and children will check in at the zoo's bus parking lot on Gentry Parkway right next to the Sonic Drive-in.  Zoo Teachers will open the parking lot at 1:15 p.m. before class begins and again at 3:20 p.m. for parents to pick up students.

Because of our very limited classroom space, classes are for registered students only.

Advance registration and payment are required.  Registrations cannot be accepted by phone.

Registrations, along with payment, can be mailed to Ed-ZOO-cation at Caldwell Zoo, P. O. Box 4785, Tyler, TX  75712 OR dropped off at the zoo's front entry.
