Adventure Pass

Embark on an exciting adventure through the Zoo by completing missions and investigating the living environment. With Adventure Pass in hand, groups of students will meet up with educators, Zoo keepers, and use our exhibits to complete this adventure.

Fun-filled, age-appropriate, standards-based topics available for grades:  K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12.

If considering the Adventure Pass, the Wild Pack, or our School Days event, we suggest you choose only one of these three programs for your visit. We find a visit to the Zoo is most enjoyable when concentrating on one of these experiences at a time!
