Students in 6th grade through college will receive FREE admission to the Zoo on Career Day. Students under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a paying adult. Younger siblings and adults are required to pay the regular admission rate. Discounted youth (ages 5-12) and adult tickets can be purchased online.
Pre-registration is not required, but all students (including those with zoo memberships) must check in with Career Day staff before getting their tickets at the admissions window. Please bring a completed check-in form to speed up the process!
Career Day at our sister zoo, Northwest Trek Wildlife Park, takes place every year on the first Saturday in March. Pre-registration is required.
