The start of the school year does not mean learning must be confined to workbooks and science projects. From Lyutik the majestic polar bear to George the talking magpie, Alaska Zoo residents are eager to help guests better understand their species, habitat and more.
Get the little ones engaged year-round with toddler sing-a-long Mondays and storytime Wednesdays. With the School Animal Adoption Program, students develop educationally and socially while discovering philanthropy and conservation. A variety of field trips are also available.
The Alaska Zoo, home to orphaned and injured animals, is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
