We’re excited to welcome guests back to the Prospect Park Zoo! WCS Education programs are currently on hiatus at the Prospect Park Zoo. If you’re looking for an awesome WCS summer camp experience, we recommend checking out the New York Aquarium or Queens Zoo while spots are still available.

While the zoo will reopen on May 25, 2024, WCS Education spaces are still under construction. We will resume your favorite programs for children and families later this year. You can check back here or subscribe to our newsletter.

Thanks for your patience as we work to ensure the best environment for you, our staff, and our animals.

In the meantime, fall programs at our zoos and aquarium across the city will be available to book by end of summer.

Our office is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

If you have any questions, please call 800-433-4149 or email ppzeducation@wcs.org.
