KYZ's school programs
are a unique experience and include more than just impressive reptiles - education is a big part of our mission. 

The main principles of our programs are tied into Kentucky Core Content.

Reptiles are used as models and examples of biological concepts, so students learn more than just what a particular animal eats or where it lives.

The Kentucky Reptile Zoo can supplement your current biological science or ecology program with an introduction to the reptilian world.

Presentations are available for children in grades K-12 and groups of all sizes.

All our programs are guaranteed to be informational, scientific, and of course FUN!
