Please note: After researching and discussion with teachers, we have made changes to our field trip booking process and have streamlined things to be easier and more efficient for teachers and students. This new process will allow teachers to have their tickets in advance, bypass the ticket booth, and head straight to the entrance gate from the bus. These changes were not made lightly and our goal is to do what is in the best interest of students and teachers for a successful Zoo field trip.
To receive discounted field trip pricing, your visit MUST be booked through our online registration system.
Reservations must be made 10 days in advance and no changes can be made seven days prior.
Online field trip reservations for the 2022-23 school year are now available.
All teachers must read and sign the field trip guidelines below. Email signed copy to email@example.com.
Students, pre-K through fifth grade $7.00
Students, sixth grade through college $9.00
