Let your classroom become a place of W.O.W. and an outlet for connections to the natural world.

For $250 plus $2/per student attending or $50.00 minimum per individual classroom clients will receive a 45 minute program. The program includes live animal species with the opportunity to touch and feel many of the animal guests as well as various biofacts such as skulls, furs, and molds. Classroom size may be no larger than 30 students.. *Additional back-to-back programs at same location may be booked at a discount of $200.

Feathers, Fur and Scales (Pre K- 2nd): Discover what’s what in the animal world. What makes an animal a bird, mammal or reptile? You’ll find out by meeting all three!

Desert Adaptations (3rd-5th): The desert is a thriving habitat and animals of the desert find ways to survive: they find water in remarkable places, hunt food that we as humans don’t find tasty, they can live in houses that are made out of odd structures with spikes and many have some wild adaptations to aid in their survival.

Endangered Species (6th-12th): There are many animals of the desert that are on the brink of extinction. There are ways you can help and the staff of the Living Desert with their animal ambassadors can show you how. They help you to understand the threats that put animals onto that Endangered species list.
