Winter & Spring Classes

Global Biomes

Africa Biome Margaret

A bioclimatic zone, or biome, is a region broadly defined by the relationship of the area’s temperature patterns, annual precipitation and living organisms. This course will introduce the biomes of the world through zoo-based explorations of the characteristic vegetation and wildlife of biomes represented at Woodland Park Zoo and current conservation issues relevant to each. The course may take a different specific regional focus, such as Biomes of Asia or Biomes of Africa, each time it is offered.


This course typically is held on one weekend day in the Spring at the zoo from 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. and includes an evening presentation by National Geographic Live.  Those participants taking the course for credit will complete web-based coursework from late January through early May. Registration opens October 1. 






Perspectives in Environment & Culture

Through the lenses of geography, anthropology and biology, this course explores past, present and future human-environment interactions across the world, particularly those involving wildlife. The course includes an evening presentation by a National Geographic Live presenter and a full day at Woodland Park Zoo that builds on the content of the evening presentation. Using a multidisciplinary approach, participants will gain a deeper understanding of cultural interactions with the natural environment through experiences on zoo grounds, presentations and activities that can be used to engage students in exploring these issues.

 Science in the Outdoors

Butterfly

Explore animals and habitats of your schoolyard, backyard or community! Participants will learn fun ways of using the specific course topic (which focus on different animal groups such as insects, birds or amphibians) to introduce students to important biological and ecological concepts. The course will also explore how the zoo is actively involved in conservation of local Northwest species. Information will be presented on how to create wildlife-friendly habitats on school grounds that your students can use for science investigations. Course participants will also practice scientific field methods for observing and identifying animals, and will learn how to participate in programs to monitor local wildlife.


This course typically is held on one weekend day in the Spring at the zoo from 8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. for clock hours. Registration opens October 1.
