Homeschool Day is later this month and you won’t want to miss this fun interactive day!

Our Education Department has an amazing lineup of partners who will be at our Zoo!

We will have approximately 20 community partners with booths set up throughout the zoo. Each booth will have a hands-on, educational activity and information on what programs they offer for homeschool students.

Zoo members are not charged for Homeschool Day and do not need to pre-register, but are encouraged to contact the Education Department in advance so we can better anticipate attendance numbers for our community partners. You may send an email to: Education@AustinZoo.org.

All Homeschool Day attendees must have their hands stamped. This will let our community partners know which families in the zoo are homeschool families.

Check-in for those who pre-registered will occur at a table across from our Admissions area.

Walk-ups will be allowed, however, our regular admission fees will apply. $16.95 for adults, $13.95 for children 2 – 12.

OUR  DISCOUNTED ADMISSION RATE WILL APPLY TO STUDENTS AND ADULTS. YOU MUST REGISTER BY THE END OF BUSINESS ON FRIDAY,  SEPETMBER 16TH TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR THIS SPECIAL DISCOUNTED PRICE.
