The Greater Vancouver Zoo has always been a unique resource for educators of all grade levels, from Pre-School to University students. Now with the introduction of the new British Columbia curriculum, even more opportunities are available here. The new curriculum is about providing a greater connection to learning, and we have many resources to assist educators in meeting those learning outcomes at our facility or by having us come to you with our outreach options.

This is a free event and does fill up very quickly as we are limited with space, so please do not delay! To register please click here or for further information about the day, please contact our Education Department at 604.856.6825 ext 26 or email

Event takes place from 9:30 am - 1:30 pm on October 21st.

All educators are free of charge and includes light snacks and refreshments, although we recommend that you bring a bag lunch or money to purchase lunch at our Safari Grill cafe. Please be aware that this is for "educators only" therefore no guests or children will be allowed with this program.
