School Field Trip Information

  • Students may not carry backpacks inside the Zoo. Small drawstring bags are allowed for students to carry their belongings and we encourage the use of refillable water bottles. Backpacks are allowed for teachers and chaperones only.
  • Lunches are not allowed to be brought into the Zoo. Schools that bring their own lunches can eat in one of the picnic areas outside of the Zoo's North America or Africa entrances. Schools may also pre-order bagged lunches through the Zoo.
  • Please print and bring your confirmation letter received via email for entry on the day of your visit. 
  • Buses can unload and park at North America in parking lot "A" or Solar Pointe. In Africa, the location is parking lot 1. Buses can not park, load or unload in front of the Zoo entrances.
  • School field trips require one adult chaperone for every 10 students. Chaperones must remain with their groups at all times.
