Education Center Programs


The Lee Richardson Zoo Education Center programs provide guests of all ages with a unique opportunity to learn about the environment and get up close and personal with our animal ambassadors. 


Choose from one of our pre-designed programs that align to educational standards or have a program created to meet your particular needs.  All programs are led by a trained docent volunteer or staff member, take place in the Finnup Center for Conservation Education and are free of charge. 


Most programs are scheduled weekdays between 8:00am and 5:00pm CT, but weekend requests can sometimes be accommodated.  Programs can be combined with a walking tour if scheduling permits. 


Contact Whitney Buchman, Curator of Education at (620) 276-1250 or at zoo.education@gardencityks.us to schedule your program today!
