Do you know what animal enrichment is? If not, now is your chance to learn! Enroll in these Saturday 1/2 day camps to connect with the animals and learn what they like to do for fun! Enrichment is anything that encourages the animals to make choices, exhibit natural or species-appropriate behaviors. Enrichment also presents mental challenges for the animal, encourages physical activity/exercise and enhances their overall well being. The campers will get to discover what type of enrichment is best for each animal, create it and then watch the animal ambassador enjoy it! If time allows, you can make your own take-home enrichment for the animals in your own backyard! We will highlight one specific animal here at the zoo each month. Do your kids have a favorite animal from our list? Maybe they love all kinds of animals and want to enroll in all of the camps!
Please bring a refillable drink container and a sack lunch. Snacks will be provided. We ask that campers wear closed-toed shoes while at the zoo. Pre-registration is required and can be done online at www.atascadero.org or by calling 470-3360. For more information about the camps please call the zoo education department at 470-3172 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
February session will spotlight the Fossa.
