Groups that come to the Front Gate without pre-purchased tickets or a reservation must pay regular admission rates for all visitors in their party.
For additional fees, you can add on one of the below experiences to your group visit.
These interactive learning experiences make a terrific addition to your Zoo visit! These presentations allow visitors of all ages to get up close and personal with our Animal Ambassadors from our program animal collection. These animals are not visible on your typical Zoo visit; they are only available to see with one of our themed Animal Presentations.
Each experience lasts about 45 minutes and includes three or four live animals, interactive activities and animal-related artifacts.
$100 for up to 30 participants; $85 for each additional group of 30. This fee is in addition to your group admission rate per guest.
Think field study and fun! A professional Zoo Educator will lead your group through a thematic, interactive experience! Expeditions take place in and around the Zoo and bring learning alive. Each Expedition comes with pre-visit materials to help your group get the most out of your visit.
All of our programs meet Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and New York State P-12 Science Learning Standards and can be tailored to meet the needs of your group.
First 15 guests: $70; each additional 15 guests: $50. This fee is in addition to your discounted group admission rate per guest.
