Wildlife Outreach Programs

Our educational ambassador animals can be a fantastic tool to teach students about wildlife and nature. We are now offering virtual, interactive lessons as well as in-person visits.

You can choose from a variety of wildlife programs with our Animal Ambassadors. Our programs cover a range of topics and we present to audiences of all ages.

  • Variety of animals including salamander, frogs, toad, turtles, snakes, a rabbit and a porcupine. Types of animals cannot be guaranteed in order for us to be flexible enough to meet our animals’ needs.
  • Within 90 miles of Duluth, St. Cloud, Twin Cities
  • Abundant props and audience participation add to the fun of learning
  • Presented by our skilled wildlife education staff
  • Competitively priced, no weekend surcharges.

Leap, Creep and Slither

Suggested ages 2nd-6th Grade; 1 hour program.

From water, to land, to trees, reptiles and amphibians have special abilities that help them survive.  Meet live reptiles and amphibians that live in Minnesota as they teach us how they survive.
