Homeschool Day 2023

Join the Great Plains Zoo and Butterfly House & Aquarium for our first annual Homeschool Day on October 20, 2023!

About Homeschool Day

The topic for this year will be Animal Habitats! Learn about different habitats around the world and unique animal traits that help them survive in their habitats.

This educational adventure will include a variety of animal encounters, activities, crafts, learning stations, and keeper talks. Participants will also receive take-home packets filled with activity instructions to continue learning at home!

Morning activities will take place at the Butterfly House & Aquarium from 9 AM to 12 PM. Afternoon activities will take place at the Great Plains Zoo from 1 PM to 4 PM. You are welcome to participate in activities at either or both of our locations!
