volunteer reading to children at a Fort Worth Zoo workshopWorkshops

The Zoo invites educators (formal and informal), classroom teachers, naturalists, camp counselors, scout leaders and home-schoolers to register for a Fort Worth Zoo Workshop!

Come and explore new curriculum and hands-on activities available through Zoo workshops. These workshops provide cross-curricular tools that meet the TEKS requirements while allowing educators to have fun and earn professional development hours. All workshops earn Continuing Professional Education (CPE) hours and some workshops include Texas Environmental Education Advisory Committee (TEEAC) and Gifted and Talented credit hours.

Teacher workshops are scheduled on a by-request basis for groups of 15 or more confirmed participants. For more information about offerings and to schedule your group, please contact the Education Department via the information at the bottom of the page.


A complete registration form is required for each participant. Registration and payment must be completed online. Payment by credit card is due at the time of registration.


Once you have registered and completed payment online, a receipt will be sent to you via email. A parking pass will be mailed to you separately prior to the date of the workshop.

Refunds and/or session changes must be requested at least 30 days before the session begins. Requests must be made in writing and emailed or faxed to the Education Center. No refunds or session changes will be given if the request is received less than 30 days before the session start date.
