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.
