Education Center partners

To provide meaningful opportunities for visitors to engage in conservation, the Oregon Zoo has partnered with agencies and community organizations from around the region focused on conservation and education. Through these partners, visitors can sign up for classes, workshops, restoration projects, backyard certification and more. Check out our guides below for lists of upcoming events and activities.

To reach our goal of connecting all zoo visitors with regional menu of conservation opportunities, we are always looking for new partnerships. If your organization would like to join, please email Amanda at
