Bird meeting school kids

THIS is the program that gives animal lovers hands-on experience to reach their animal care career goals. The Exotic Animal Training and Management program accepts 50 students every year and houses 120 amazing animals.

America's Teaching Zoo is the hand-on classroom for the Exotic Animal Training and Management students AND a community attraction in a beautiful hilltop setting.
