Example itinerary:

9:30 am -Arrival

Children must remain on buses until all buses are parked and cleared for unloading by your designated person in charge.

Please divided your students into smaller groups with an adult leader.

Discuss these basic rules with your students:

   Do not climb on the fences.

   Do not break the bamboo.

   If you feed any of the animals that come to the fence be sure to hold your

   hand out flat, palm up.

   Stay with your group and leader at all times.

Your groups will walk at their own pace on the pathways and possibly go in different directions to avoid crowding.


We encourage students to bring their cell phone and tablets to scan our Q reader cards and watch the videos about our animals.  These  awesome videos were created by North Hall Middle School E2 7th grade.

​Photographs are encouraged!


11:00 am Lunch- Meet at large pavilion or designated lunch area. Please make sure all trash, especially plastic straw covers are put in the trash cans. 

Plastic is deadly to animals!


11:30 am Private small animal show- optional for your group and an additional $100 Students and teacher love this because they can touch the animals and ask questions directly to the lead zookeepers.

Animals may vary according to the weather and are a great surprise for everyone! (Please let our zoo keepers know your quiet signal and who is in charge of quieting the group)


This is just an example and we will do everything possible to accommodate you and your students!







 

All groups are welcome and we have plenty of room for buses- large paved parking lot!
