Jr. ZooTeen

As a stepping stone to the ZooTeen program, Franklin Park Zoo's Jr. ZooTeen program is a creative and meaningful educational opportunity for highly-motivated youth ages 12 to 14.

This program offers a hands-on learning atmosphere, life-skill development, and several mentorship opportunities with Zoo New England staff members.

This spring, participants will learn about the multiple conservation efforts happening here at Zoo New England, and around the world! You can expect curriculum topics to cover Habitat Loss, Invasive Species, Overhunting, and Climate Change. Expect to leave as a wildlife conservation expert!
