ZOO CREW: Animal Chemical Warfare

Do you have a child between the ages of 11-14? Do they want to discover more about wildlife while spending an afternoon at Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo? Our premier “Zoo Crew” program returns April 30th to learn about Animal Chemical Warfare from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm.

What’s the difference between poison and venom? Can venomous animals control how much toxin they release?  Do we have any poisonous or venomous animals in Connecticut? We’ll explore the various forms of chemical weapons in our own backyard and beyond.

Sign up using the registration form. The cost is $20 for members and $25 for non-members, which covers the program and cost of admission. Space is limited to only 16 students, so sign up today! Contact our Education Department at 203-394-6563 or programming@beardsleyzoo.org with any questions.
