About the Zoo:
Planning to have a field trip with your whole class? Going to Frank Buck Zoo is one of the best choices especially if you are living in Texas. This zoo mainly focuses in providing new knowledge to students and there are also zoo keepers who are ready to impart information about various animals. Before you set out for a field trip, here are some of the tips that might be useful to you:
Admission – A large group is hard to handle especially if you don’t follow a system. You can collect the money, put it in an envelope before handing the payments to the cashier. Ask your whole group to wait in a certain area like the parking lot so it will be easier to distribute the wristbands. Also make sure that you have the exact number of members and have a list of activities that the class will do.
Food– Make sure that you orient the whole group about the policies of zoo. No outside food is allowed. Coolers are also not allowed in the park so you should leave the coolers in the bus. There are pavilions outside the zoo that you can use for a picnic.
Parking – If your group is using a bus, the vehicle may proceed on the east side of the zoo. The chaperones are also allowed to park at any vacant space in the parking lot.
If you have questions about Zoo, you may call the phone number posted above this page.
