Adult Opportunities

You don’t have to be a kid to enjoy educational opportunities at the Birmingham Zoo. Our adult oriented programs allow people interested in expanding their understanding of the natural world through a variety of activities suited just for the adult learner.

In addition to our photography classes, you may want to consider our Zoo Keeper for a Day Program, which has classes tailored for adults, or one of our Nightlife Programs, that are great for groups of all ages. If you’re an adult in college, you may also be interested in our College Programs.

Art with the Animals

Join us for a totally wild painting adventure.  With animals as your inspiration create your own unique artwork while being led by Julia McNair, owner of Do It Yourself Crafts.  At each class you will have an opportunity to see and learn about the animals before painting them into your work of art.  Join us for a fun afternoon of animals and art.

Please note that classes will take place outdoors near the animal exhibits so please dress for the weather.
