Small Venue Programs

In a more intimate setting a knowledgeable Zoo educator will engage your group in a fun and interactive program highlighting the amazing adaptations and survival stories of 3 Zoo animal ambassadors. We will talk about the important role each species plays and ways we can all become involved in protecting wildlife and wild places. During this program participants will have the opportunity to touch and/or interact with animals. Max 30-40 participants.

If you have an audience larger than 40 participants and you would like an assembly program check out our Ameritas Wings of Wonder Bird Encounter

Mix and Mingle

Have a large event?  We are happy to be a part of it!  During this 45 minute interaction, a knowledgeable Zoo educator will have three Zoo Animal Ambassadors prepared to meet visitors as they pass by our station.

This is a great option for open format events that allow guests to choose to visit our station, ask questions, and may even touch some of our Animal Ambassadors! 


Frisch’s Zoo on the Move is for school or non-school groups. Events such as scout gatherings, library programs, after-school programs, fairs, birthdays, camps, community events, picnics, nursing homes, etc. benefit from our appearances.

This program is not appropriate for commercial retail settings. Purely commercial ventures like store openings and other retail events are not possible.

  • Zoo animals MUST NOT be near or mixed with non-Zoo animals.
  • For downtown or busy areas, the group/event coordinator must provide free parking for the Zoo vehicle.  The parking spot must be less than a block from a cart-accessible entrance to the event space.  Zoo vehicles are not permitted to park in designated handicap-accessible spaces.
  • There must be a staging area for the animals where the public is NOT PERMITTED. This area must be cool in the summer, warm in the winter, and well ventilated.
  • Our animals require privacy while they are in their crates. Whether in or out of their crates, disruptive behavior & excessive noise is unacceptable in their area. This includes (but is not limited to) machinery, loud music, and crowd conduct.
  • Appropriate shade and shelter must be available. Animals cannot be in direct sunlight.
  • Many of our animals cannot be outside in temperatures over 80 degrees or under 60 degrees. This does not apply to all species but it does apply to the majority. Please consider this when determining the location.
  • We require, for the safety of our animals, a temperature-controlled indoor space to use in case of inclement weather or high or low temperatures.
  • The presenter will need a parking space close to the presentation site.
  • Group behavior is the responsibility of the group leader not the Zoo.
  • Presenters have the authority to cancel or stop a program if the requirements are not met or if they feel the animals’ welfare is jeopardized.  In these instances, no refund will be issued.
  • If the Zoo must cancel your program, every effort will be made to contact you at least 3 hours in advance.
