Each Keeper Chat is $20.

Field Trip With Animal Program

During your trip an educator will come teach about some of the different ambassador animals that travel to classrooms and libraries all across the state.  We can even make the program specific to a badge or theme.  We can tailor programs to focus on pet care, endangered animals, habitats, and more. The animal program lasts a half hour, leaving plenty of time to see the rest of the Zoo.  

Cost is $45 plus group rate admission.

Animal Program With Additional Activities

Let us know what your group would like to learn about and we can create fun educational activities just for them!  In addition to your animal program you may add on extra activities in half hour increments. 

Each half hour of programming is $45. 

*This does not include admission to the zoo.
