School Field Trips

Boulder Ridge loves it when schools visit.

Included are access to the full zoo including the elevated walkthrough safari, general walking area, petting zoo, parakeet aviary, and reptile house. Our field trips have proven to be a great hands-on, educational, and entertaining experience for kids and adults alike. Be sure to bring a lunch or snack – we have a great pavilion to eat under. You should allow at least 2-3 hrs for your visit.
