Self-Guided Field Trips

A Walk on the Wild Side!

Our Zoo Zone Field Trip program is a Self-Guided field trip that offers teachers and their students an adventurous walk through the park in search of several stations attended by volunteers to answer their questions about our wildlife animals and plants. A map of the park and Teacher Resource Guides are available to help guide you to these stations along with some questions to ask volunteers. Look for demonstration carts with a volunteer wearing a purple shirt.
