All classes at the Smithsonian's National Zoo are virtual to contain the spread of COVID-19. 

Classes available for various age groups (including adults!) are offered throughout the year.

Zoo classes aren't just for kids! Whether you want to spice up your resume or pursue an interest in wildlife, adult classes provide an insider's look at animal behavior, conservation and ecology.
Kids ages 5-14 will have a wild time learning all about animals and conservation in FONZ's virtual home-school classes. Register today!
