Have a Wild Night at the Saint Louis Zoo ANY NIGHT OF THE WEEK!

School Wild Night programs allow teachers and their classes to have the entire Zoo to themselves - an exciting combination of adventure and learning. You can come for just the evening or you can decide to spend the entire night at the Saint Louis Zoo. But no matter how long you decide to stay students are guaranteed to learn and experience something unforgettable.
