The Minnesota Zoo is the state’s largest conservation education resource. Our education programs fulfill our mission to connect people, animals and the natural world to save wildlife. Field trips to the Zoo are a great way to inspire students and give them an opportunity to observe animals and habitats from around the world. Active, inquiry-based zoo classes and tours engage students and help to link the field trip experience with learning back in the classroom. Discounted admission, educational resources and a variety of programs are available for schools, groups, and home schools.
