Review: Take time to go over the Check-In Procedures, Zoo Etiquette and Chaperone Tips you receive with your confirmation.

Stop at the ZooShop: Souvenirs help you remember your trip and help the Zoo.

Have fun and always respect the animals!

Checklist to Plan a Group Visit

Before you arrive:

Wait for confirmation from Seneca Park Zoo before booking your buses.

Book your buses and share our parking information with your busing staff. Travel with classes from your school whenever you can: share a bus. Save travel costs, pollute less, and have an easier time when you arrive at the Zoo.

Visit the Zoo to get ideas for your trip. Teachers get in free to help them plan.

Have fun in the classroom with our pre-visit activities so students get the best visit.

When you arrive:

Wait with your group on the bus and wait for unloading instructions from Zoo staff.

Unload with your group and wait in your assigned waiting area.

Collect payment from your chaperones and have all payments ready.

A Visitor Services Representative will meet you in your waiting area to collect payment.

Place your lunches in the bin labeled with your school’s name.

If you have an Expedition or Animal Presentation booked, please wait in your assigned waiting area for an Education staff member to meet you and give you further instructions.

Other important information:

First Aid and Lost and Found are located at the Zoo office at the front of the Zoo.

If you get separated from a child in your group, please stop any Zoo staff member and they will assist you.

When you leave the Zoo:

Gather your group at the front of the Zoo. A Visitor Services Representative will call your bus.
