Zoo Atlanta offering free field trips to students

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

Zoo Atlanta has partnered with the Georgia Department of Education to offer free field trips to students.

Department of education officials say the partnership is part of the Zoo's mission to make educational resources available to a larger number of students in the state. Officials say the zoo regularly uses part of its education funding to supplement science, biology and ecology studies with field trips to the zoo.

Schools in the Georgia Department of Education priority, alert or focus categories may apply for free, self-guided field trips through the zoo's sponsored admissions program through March 15. After that date, free field trips will be offered to schools in low-income areas.

Officials say self-guided trips include admission for students, one teacher and a chaperone for every 10 students.
