Cancellations, Rescheduling, and Refund Policy:
The following policies are in place because making our Teacher Classes the best possible experience they can be requires months of planning, preparation, and investment of staff resources. Upon making a reservation, we reserve a space for you. In doing so, we are barring others from signing up as we have limited seats available. All class fees include a 25% non-refundable deposit. Class fees, minus the non-refundable deposit, can be refunded or transferred to another teacher class if we receive notice of this request at least 14 calendar days prior to the date of the original class. Participants who do not show up for their registered class or choose to leave early on one or more days will not be granted a refund.

During registration, you agreed to and paid a processing fee. The total processing fee imposed by The ACTIVE Network, LLC or its applicable subsidiary, (collectively ACTIVE) includes sums charged by ACTIVE as consideration for providing its software and services (including without limitation promotional and marketing services) to the activity organizer (Chicago Zoological Society/Brookfield Zoo). These sums, as part of the total processing fee, are in addition to any actual costs incurred by ACTIVE from third party providers for each transaction. These fees are nonrefundable as they do not belong to the Chicago Zoological Society/Brookfield Zoo.

Curious about carnivores? Wild about water? Interested in inquiry? Join us for our all-new Adult Education series featuring a variety of topics and specialties designed to inspire and engage. These multi-day classes feature industry professionals and hands-on learning. Some classes take place right here at Brookfield Zoo and feature presentations by our zoo professionals and offer unique perspectives on the exhibits you already know and love. Some classes also involve exciting field trips and inspiring "in-situ" learning opportunities. If you are a teacher, you can even earn Professional Development Clock Hours (PDCHs) from these courses.

Students in this national degree program contribute to social and ecological change in their communities.
