Differentiated instruction using age-appropriate techniques makes our wildlife center the perfect hands-on learning environment for any age and developmental learning level. In addition, we are equipped and happy to create custom programming based on goals that are aligned with programs such as STEM, NextGen and Common Core, as well as state standards of instruction. While the possibilities of programming and learning are endless with a field trip to the zoo, some of our most popular programs to choose from are centered around Wildlife, Recycling, Rainforest or Mammals.

Hands-On Learning

The wildlife program includes an up close and personal hands-on learning experience with combinations of animals from the invertebrate, mammal, reptile and amphibian families. Our recycling program creates a tangible understanding for students to learn what they can do to help preserve our planet, protect its creatures, and maintain a sustainable future. The rainforest program provides a closer look and in-depth understanding of unique rainforest creatures including several species of reptiles and amphibians. Finally, and most adorable, the mammal program is great for groups looking to interact with cute and fuzzy animals that can be both observed and touched while providing a basis for learning about their physical body, creature habits and the lifecycle of each animal.

Whether you choose one of our most popular programs or work with our staff to create your own, a field trip to the zoo at Rizzo’s Wildlife World is a great learning experience and fun for kids and adults alike.

“Rizzo’s Wildlife World is an awesome experience!!! Took our 3 year old granddaughter and we were amazed at how dedicated, personable, outgoing, and friendly the staff were. They took the time to educate us about so many reptiles, insects, and other wildlife! An experience that is enjoyable for all ages!!! Great job – thanks – and will see you again!!!”

“We had an excellent time at Rizzo’s! Everything is so clean and you can tell they really love their animals and take exceptional care of them. The demonstrations were educational and fun for the children (and adults!) I can’t wait to book a party with them when my kids are older! Thank you again for an awesome day!”

“Rizzo’s came to our home and gave an amazing presentation for my son’s 7th birthday party. We loved Rizzo’s so much that we invited them back the following year for a joint birthday party for both my son and daughter. And guess what? Both kids are already planning next year’s birthday party with Rizzo’s again, of course! Five stars all the way around!!!!”
