Field Trips

Fresno Chaffee Zoo welcomes school groups for both casual field trips and more formal onsite programs. School and other educational groups are also eligible for our education group rates. These rates are good Monday through Friday and reservations must be made at least two weeks in advance; for self-led field trips please book online.

For all other education programs please email education@fresnochaffeezoo.org.
