Randall Oaks Zoo – Programs
In addition to viewing, petting and feeding our animals, the Randall Oaks Zoo offers unique programs for children of all ages. The goal of our Nature & Zoo programs is to educate and encourage children to participate in the preservation of our natural areas and the animals that live within them through hands-on projects and activities.
After-school Zoo Club | Grades 4-7
Does your child love animals? Then this after-school program may be for them! Once a week, children will grow their animal knowledge and learn what goes into taking care of our animals. Topics include different types of animal groups, adaptations, predator vs. prey, what animals eat, food chains, and more.

Nature Art Workshop | 8 years & older
“Art to express, not to impress.” Make art with your child and enjoy the process of working with a wide variety of media. We will start with a short hike to gather inspiration and materials. Then we will turn our treasures into creative expression. Cheese, crackers, and sparkling juice will be served. The fee is per participant.

Thanksgiving Pies | 7-12 years
Everyone loves pie! Make pies for the goats, camel, alpacas, sheep, cows, and pigs with healthy foods and see how they enjoy your creations. We will “bake” first and then tour the zoo to share the joy of the season.
