Since the Sacramento Zoo was founded, education has been one of the zoo’s main priorities. The Sacramento Zoo offers an array of educational opportunities that are available to people of all ages. Schools have the option of touring the Sacramento Zoo in a specialized field trip. A similar touring option is available to the general public. But, it’s important to note that the general public’s specialized tour option is only available for groups of 10 or more. If students do not have the chance to visit the zoo, the Sacramento Zoo has a special classroom program where a zoo official travels with a few animals and leads an interactive lesson.

Other educational programs include Overnight Safaris, Nature Explorers, and Teenage Volunteers. During Overnight Safaris, participants have the opportunity to spend a night in the zoo. Overnight Safaris are only available during the months of June, July, and August, and must be done with a group of at least two people. During Overnight Safaris, participants have the opportunity to explore the zoo and set up camp. Dinner and breakfast are provided by the Sacramento Zoo.
Nature Explorers is an activity in which participants have the chance to learn about nature through various stories, explorations, and hands-on activities. Lastly, the Teenage Volunteer program is perfect for teenagers who want to participate in a program similar to an internship, where they have the chance to learn about nature and animals.
