Fall and Winter Programs Scheduled at Zoo Idaho


Zoo Idaho is looking ahead to the cooler months of 2017 and 2018.

Recently, staff set the calendar for the zoo’s fall and winter programs. On deck are a variety of programs including Fall Education Series, Wild Winter Wildlife, and Winter Wonder Zoo Snooz.

“The Fall Education Series will teach children the secrets of the beautiful fall colors and the mysteries of hibernation,” said Rachael Shearouse, Curator of Education. “Meanwhile, our Wild Winter Wildlife will investigate the unique adaptations of animals that call the Intermountain West home.”

If a trip to the zoo doesn’t fit into your plans, the zoo also offers local educators the ability to bring wildlife to the classroom.

“Our outreach programs meet education standards and can teach children and teens about habitats and biodiversity,” Shearouse said. “We also have 11 Outdoor Wildlife Living Labs (O.W.L.L.) trunks available for checkout free of charge for teachers.”
