NO BUSES, NO PERMISSION SLIPS! A love of animals and nature begins as a child. Encourage this appreciation of wildlife through fun and educational animal presentations at your school with Critter Encounters in San Diego, California. All programs are grade-appropriate and follow the California State Science Standards.
Our one hour assemblies and classroom programs include five to six animals and are designed to provide hands-on learning of habitats, adaptations, natural history of specific species, as well as some conservation tips - all while allowing touching opportunities with most of the critters. Our fun, up close, hands-on presentation style encourages a love of science and a love of learning.
Each of our educational animal programs can be as general as you like, or can be specifically customized to complement topics already being discussed in your classroom (i.e. grade specific CA State Science Standards). The animals can be incorporated into science themes such as 'Adaptations', 'Habitats', 'Conservation', etc.
Please try to book your program two to three weeks in advance. We require a deposit 10 days prior to your event date, and final payment is due at the conclusion of the program.
