For organized groups grades K - 5th

Self-guided, exploration guides can be completed whenever the Zoo is open.

There are so many animals to see at the Saint Louis Zoo that planning a group visit can be a little overwhelming. This year we are trying two new guides to help facilitate your visit. These self-guided tours are tied to the state science standards. Both guides highlight four animal habitats at the Zoo, providing background thematic information and suggesting questions to prompt active student discussion during your visit.

Attention Educators

We would love your feedback! If you try our new exploration guides we would love to hear how they worked for you and your group. Please email Keri Lammering at klammering@stlzoo.org with your comments and suggestions.
