Field Trips at the Zoo Where the World is Your Classroom! Enhance your students’ learning with a field trip where the Zoo is your living classroom! Field trips to the Zoo are available year round every day of the week. All field trips are currently self-guided only, as all programs are on hold. Check out our Self-Guided School Activities! Field Trips are $7.00 per student. We require 1 adult for every 7 students. Required adults are free, and additional adults ate $7. Student aides and bus drivers are always free. Need financial assistance? Qualifying schools may apply for free field trips. Visit the Living Classroom Education Access Fund for details. During Festival of Lights (November 21st-January 4th), any school wishing to come to the Zoo must book through Group Sales, as the Zoo is closed before 1:00pm.
