Conservation Corner: Cincinnati Zoo’s Living Classroom

Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden’s Living Classroom Education Access Fund provides an amazing way for students at under-resourced schools to get some valuable hands-on learning. Through this unique program, local children are able to visit the Zoo and Botanical Garden for free and even spend the night while they see how nature interacts during the day and at night.

According to WCPO, “Nearly 18,000 students from under-resourced schools took part in free educational field trips to the zoo last year. In addition, 855 students spent the night for free as part of the Nocturnal Adventure Program. The charitable program is designed to bridge the gap, making hands-on learning available to all students.”
