Field Trips & Groups

We're so happy you are considering visiting the Zoo with your school or group. To help you with your planning, here are some guidelines for field trips and group visits.

To Qualify for a Group or Field Trip Rate

Booking and Paying for your Visit

Once you have made your reservation you will receive your confirmation that we have received it, and that your order is being processed. We will then send you your invoice with instructions on how to pay (sorry we do not accept purchase orders) along with the Zoo Manners Agreement to sign and bring in with you on your visit. Final payment may be made upon receiving your invoice but no later than at least seven days before the date of your visit. There are no refunds or credit for missing fieldtrip or group members and extra fieldtrip or group members will have to pay at full price. Refunds and changes to an order may be done and issued only if the request is made 30 days before the visit date.
