Junior Behind the Scenes Tours

Learning Adventures

Elementary school students learn about what happens beyond the “Employees & Animals Only” signs. Students will hear more about the area they visit, how it works and why the area is important to Zoo operations.

After classroom time, students will go behind the scenes to explore the area and maybe even see an expert in action.

Please dress for the weather and closed-toe shoes are required.

Grades 1–5

Each student that attends class must have a ticket. Space is limited. Tickets will be scanned at the door. All classes take place rain or shine. All reservations are final. No refunds; tickets will not be replaced if lost, stolen or unused.

$7 Members $9 Non-Members
