Guided Tours & Animal Presentations 

Self Guided Tours

If you choose to lead your group around the zoo yourself, after making your reservation, you will receive an informational packet with a zoo map, a sheet explaining the rules of the zoo, a fee calculation form and other information to help make your zoo visit fun and educational.

Consider renting a Nature’s Connections Apron for your groups visit.  The aprons are geared to primary elementary levels with appropriate materials in each.  The aprons focus on animal adaptations with activities and bio-facts provided to offer tangible reinforcements for the concepts expressed.
