Our middle and high school programming explores biological systems from an ecosystem perspective. You choose the theme, and we’ll bring 2-3 animals to teach that theme to your students.

These programs are designed to enhance your lessons and reinforce biological next generation science standards.

We are always developing more programs and will gladly tailor a program to your classroom’s needs. Our animal ambassadors love visiting classrooms to share about their natural history and behaviors.

Pricing: recommended donation of $40 per class (approx. 1 hour). Support our educational mission by making a donation to Grassland Groupies. We believe every student should have equal access and have funds set aside for schools in need.

Speaking Engagements

Choose us as a guest speaker at your organization’s meetings or events. Our expert presentations last 45-60 minutes, and can be tailored to fit your group’s interests. We make in-person and virtual appearances, and donations are graciously accepted.
