Wild Field Trips are designed for public, private, and homeschool groups of 15 or more only, pre-k through 12th grade.
Our trained tour guides will take your students on a one-hour guided tour, introducing them to over 20 species and connecting their characteristics and adaptations to your grade level-specific science concepts. Suitable for any grade level, tours are designed to meet North Carolina Standard Course of Study science goals and objectives.
For the young and the young at heart, every adventure to the Animal Park is an experience they’ll never forget!
Group tours are perfect for any large groups of any age. (For schools, see Wild Field Trips). Your personal guide will give you a unique look at the place our animals call home. Group tours typically last approximately 1 hour.
The Animal Park’s Wild Overnight Experience accommodates varied ages and interests. Although every program may not be suitable for younger children, our educational team will work with you to cater a theme to your group’s interests. Each Wild Overnight can be catered to a variety of themes relating to the Animal Park's residents and their care.
The Animal Park has been fortunate to have developed relationships with several area youth organizations, and is looking to connect with even more. Our Wild Overnight is incredibly popular with local Boy Scouts & Girl Scouts. Whether you are a troop leader, or a parent of a Girl Scout or Boy Scout, there are many ways to get involved at the Animal Park.
