NORRISTOWN — Elmwood Park Zoo is excited to unveil a brand new educational initiative to benefit local school students. Entitled “Elementary Education Takeovers,” the program invites area schools to visit the zoo, free of charge, for a whole day full of experiential learning activities.
The first Elementary Education Takeover is scheduled for Tuesday, May 7, from 10 am to 2 pm.
