Educational Programs

Program Variety

The Bergen County Zoo offers education programs for everyone:
  • Children and adults
  • Individuals and groups
  • At the zoo or at your facility
A variety of programs are offered throughout the year. While a visit to the zoo is always fun and educational in its own right, you can enhance your visit with an education program.
