General Scheduling Information:

Reservation forms must be received at least two (2) weeks in advance. Please be sure to include several date options as program availability is limited and our schedule fills quickly! Forms can be sent by e-mail, fax or postal mail.  Please include detailed driving directions from Google Maps or Mapquest with your reservation form.

We offer several presentation options:  a stage show, walk-around experience or booth/stationary display.

We have a collection of over 30 educational animals which travel off grounds for programs. Animal requests can be made, however, we cannot guarantee the appearance of a specific animal.  Additionally, we cannot confirm which animals will be included in any program since there are a variety of factors that determine which animals are available on a daily basis


Payment: Programs must be paid in full at least one week in advance of the program date. Programs cancelled within one (1) week of the scheduled date are not eligible for a refund. Refunds will not be issued for any amount under $20, for cancellations made within one (1) week of the scheduled date, or for no-show groups. Your school (and/or Big Thought/Learning Partners if using LP funding) will be invoiced for the total reservation cost if you fail to show for your program or cancel within one (1) week of the scheduled date.

The Animal Adventures Office is open Monday-Friday during regular Zoo hours.  Contact us at animaladventures@dallaszoo.com or 469.554.7455.
