Homeschool Field Trips

Animal Education for Homeschoolers


During April & May and September & October, we will offer our School Field Trip rates to homeschools with less than the normally required 10 student minimum on Fridays from 10 am to 6 pm.  

Parents & Students will be $8.00 per person and includes admission, bag of animal feed, and a feedstick for the parakeets!

We will not be able to offer our Educational Talk for you - however, if we have a larger school here during your visit you are more than welcome to sit in on their Educational Talk at that time.

No reservations required.  We are just putting everyone on the honor system that you are a Homeschool Parent.  Please DO NOT book online for a Homeschool Field Trip as these spots are reserved for our larger schools which meet the minimum requirements for students.

Any questions - please call the Zoo Office at 573-243-7862 or email us at  Happy Homeschooling!

PS - We have a lot of educational signage and staff will be more than happy to answer any questions your students have during your visit so you can count this as an educational field trip!

We also host Homeschool Days which feature ticketed educational events for homeschoolers!  Check back often for our Homeschool Days Event schedule.  

No Events Available at this Time!

Reservations required!  Advance tickets MUST be purchased ONLINE ONLY!
