Bringing your class to the zoo will create an unforgettable day of learning and fun for you and your students! Schools must submit a reservation form prior to their arrival date to receive our special rate of $2.00 per student.  Reservations can be made by faxing the completed form to (707) 441-4237, e-mailing it to or by calling (707) 441-4263 ext.5 during regular zoo hours.

Adult chaperons are required for every class (through grade 12) at a ratio of 1 adult per 5 students; these chaperones will be allowed in free of charge.  Additional adults may accompany the class but will be required to pay the full admission price if the 1:5 ratio is exceeded.  Any additional children who are not students in the class will also be required to pay the regular admission price. Zoo Membership passes are not accepted for students or chaperons during field trips

In addition to time in the contact corral, all classes with reservations will be able to participate in a FREE hands-on activity in our Learning Lab. This 30-minute presentation plus mini-tour will focus on the importance of our watersheds and teach students how and why  we need to protect these valuable resources.
