We offer children real-world experiences with inquiry and investigation. Here, young people can explore interactive science exhibits and have up-close encounters with native California animals (our 100 animals have come to us as rescued or non-releasable). Science exhibits: Interactive exhibits present nature’s surprising and often beautiful phenomena. Children do real science as they change and test variables. Wildlife exhibits: Habitats allow visitors both young and old an up-close view of native California animals. CuriOdyssey is accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). Fewer than 10% of zoos and aquariums nationwide are accredited by AZA. Animal Ambassadors and Wildlife programs: A world-class team of wildlife educators lead exciting programs presenting our extensive collection of animals. Also called Animal Ambassadors, these include many species of birds, small mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and more. Volunteers show animals directly and allow visitors to touch them as they learn about them. School science programs: Our expert science educators lead popular interactive education programs and wildlife programs both on-site and in-schools. Public education programs: Our expert science educators lead engaging education and wildlife programs for the general public. Children and families investigate, discover, and interact with natural world phenomena in workshops, presentations, and camps.
Children naturally love to explore, to discover, and to figure things out on their own. CuriOdyssey helps them experience being the natural scientists they already are. Through your support, we can offer kids groundbreaking, interactive science exhibits, deeply memorable school and public programs, and unforgettable encounters with native California animals. Through these interactions, they learn to understand and care for the natural world.
We love to educate kids to think critically. We believe that as they grow, they will use this life-long skill to understand and help solve some of the world’s greatest challenges.
