Education Program Request
All requests for programs should be made at least six (6) weeks in advance of the requested date. You must enter a specific date for your desired program. Entries with anything other than a specific date in the “Event Date” field cannot be scheduled.
Booth settings are best kept under a 4 hour time frame.
Please advise your program coordinator when contacted by them if there are any cultural sensitivities to particular animals (ie snakes or owls)
For school groups, Liberty Wildlife Education is happy to provide programs for second grade classrooms and older. Due to resource constraints, we cannot conduct programs for kindergarten or first grade classes. Please discuss other situations with the Program Coordinator who contacts you.
In order to keep up with the expenses involved in the care of our animals as well as the transportation to our many programs, we have had to institute a fee of a minimum of $250 per program. If you have a larger event or more means amongst your group, larger donations are always welcome. If your school or group will have trouble reaching that amount, please submit the request and also send an e-mail to our program scheduler at email@example.com to see what can be arranged.
Eagles are a higher level and we are limited on their usage so their program fee is $500. Eagle Scouts do have exceptions – see below for rules to have an eagle at an Eagle Scout Court of Honor.
If you do not get an e-mail confirming receipt of your program request a week after you submit it, please contact the program scheduler firstname.lastname@example.org.
