Animal Enrichment Workshops

Adults, children, families, and groups can assist in creating objects to stimulate animals’ interest and encourage natural behaviors at an Animal Enrichment Workshop.

Individuals need not register ahead of time and no previous training is required; just arrive at the scheduled time ready to work. All workshop materials are provided and participants may want to wear old clothes.

Animal Enrichment Workshop Schedule

We have completed our Animal Enrichment Workshops for the year. Check back in the spring for more dates!

Workshops meet in the lower level of the Zoo Education Center across the street from the zoo.

Group leaders should call the zoo’s Volunteer Office at 260-427-6828 at least one week in advance, with the ages and number of people in the group. All children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult (a scout or group leader, parent, or guardian.)

Because it is a community service opportunity, the Animal Enrichment Workshop does not include zoo admission.
