We are fortunate in Jacksonville to have a first-class zoo. Zoo visits help children understand animal behavior and characteristics and discover how they differ from how books and other media portray them. It is a good workout for the brain that helps kindergarteners to grow mentally. A zoo is a place where they are exposed to entirely new words, concepts, and awareness of the world.
Sponsor: The basic zoo entrance is free to Duval County school students on a field trip. Know & Grow is proud to sponsor the school bus plus extra events the children love, such as the train ride and animal feedings.
