School Groups

We welcome school groups from all over the Big Country and in order to serve the schools better, teachers that want to visit the zoo must submit a Zoo Trip request form. Please submit your form at least 7 days in advance so we can be prepared for you. Contact the Education Department at 325-676-6487 or with questions!

The Zoo Trip Request form needs to be submitted to the Abilene Zoo even if you are not scheduling a class! Confirmation will be sent by email. Thanks for your cooperation!

Please remember when planning your trip that students must be in adult supervised groups at ALL times.

Basic Protocol

  • Zoo hours are 9:00 am to 5:00 pm daily. The front gates close at 4:00, and most of the large exhibit animals are put up at 4:30.
  • At least one adult is required for every 20 students. Adults must stay with their group at all times.
  • Please review “Zoo Do’s” with your group while they are on the bus.

Zoo Do’s
1) Walk
2) Watch
3) Stay quiet and calm

If your group is too rowdy, your group may be asked to leave zoo grounds and/or your principal may be contacted.
