It’s Field Trip Season

The Houston Zoo is proud to host thousands of local school groups each year for field trips. If you are arriving on weekday mornings in April and May, consider arriving at 9 a.m. or after 11 a.m. to avoid bus arrival. We recommend carpooling if you are accompanying your child on a field trip. Consider bus and rail options as well.
