Half and Full Day Outreaches

In this unique offering, a museum educator will come to a school, church group, or civic group and spend either a half-day or full day presenting live animals to small successive groups. (Educator will present to small groups on a rotation, as opposed to one large presentation for everyone at one time. This gives students/groups a more personal experience).

Cost: Half-day (4 hours) is $300. Full day (up to 8 hours) is $600.

Travel outside Calhoun County includes an additional mileage fee. The museum presents a variety of live animals that can be selected for educational programming. Contact the Education Director to discuss the best option based on the group’s interests, curriculum, and size.
