Guided Group Tours

Tours and programs are typically 45-60 minutes in duration. Staff-guided experiences are scheduled based upon staff availability and should be booked at least 2-4 weeks in advance.

COVID-19 Update

Due to physical distancing recommendations, we may not be able to honor all requests for large guided group visits. We encourage you to submit a request form and work with our staff to find the right program for your group. We are closely monitoring COVID-19 in our community and surrounding communities and availability of programs is subject to change. Please review our on-grounds safety precautions prior to your visit. For your safety and the safety of our staff, tour participants are required to wear a mask for the duration of the program. Due to incredibly limited seating, groups booking a visit with the group rate are not allowed to attend the Bird Show.  

Virtual Tours

Our Education Department is happy to provide you and your group with a virtual tour experience. Choose from any of the available tours, including custom tours, listed below. Virtual tours are pre-recorded, showcase 3-4 exhibits relevant to the theme of the tour, and are approximately 15 minutes. You will receive a link to an edited video that you are welcome to share with all members of your group! Scroll down to review tours, pricing, and to submit your request.
