Assiniboine Park & Zoo Programs
Park & Zoo Programs
Assiniboine Park is dedicated to providing people of all ages with the highest quality environmental education programs in the province, creating a lasting appreciation of the natural world, and inspiring people of all ages to get out and be active throughout the year.
We Have Great Indoor & Outdoor Facilities
The Assiniboine Park Zoo is Manitoba’s premiere location for animal-based education. The Zoo’s Education Centre is designed to promote awareness of endangered species and wildlife conservation through public education and hands-on, interactive learning. The Pavilion Gallery Museum and Leo Mol Sculpture Garden are first-class locations for art education. The Assiniboine Park Conservatory is one of the most unique plant-based teaching facilities in Manitoba. The extensive living classrooms – the Herb Garden, the Abilities Garden, the English Gardens, the Tropical Palm House and Floral Display Atrium – provide dynamic year-round settings for exciting lessons. And as always, there are acres upon acres of natural beauty that Assiniboine Park freely offers to you to help green your mind, body and soul.
We Have Great People
Each member of our team brings a wealth of knowledge, skill, experience and enthusiasm to every program. They know how to make learning fun!
We Educate & Entertain
We specialize in walking tours along with one-of-a-kind programs and workshops on a wide range of themes. Bring your class or group to explore the wonders of the plant and animal worlds or the wonderfully expressive worlds of art and sculpture, food and cuisine, music and literacy. We incorporate learning outcomes of Manitoba Education Citizenship and Youth curricula in science, social studies, language, recreation, culture, career development, sustainability and the arts for pre-school to Senior 4, but you can also just come for the fun. A wide variety of teaching strategies are used to connect with many different learning styles from the naturalist to the interpersonal.
