In light of COVID-19, the Lehigh Valley Zoo has implemented guidelines and requirements to provide safe programs for our guests, staff, and animals. Please fill out a program request form to receive these policies via email. Any questions or concerns can be emailed to email@example.com.
Let the Zoo come to you! The Zoo’s unique animal ambassadors are a great way to introduce conservation topics to your group. These educational programs are great for school assemblies, library events, scout events, and assisted living centers. Our presentations can be adapted for almost all age groups. These engaging programs incorporate Common Core Standards, Pennsylvania Assessment Anchors and Eligible Content, and science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM).
