Self-Guided Visit

Tracy Aviary is an ideal place to bring your school group, corporate retreat, scout troop, or a group of friends or family!

Self-guided visits must be booked one week prior to field trip date. This ensures confirmation of our special pricing for your group and allows our Guest Services staff to be prepared for your visit.

Virtual Tours Add-on

Looking for a fun way to enhance your self-guided visit? 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 on our guided group tours page. We'll send you a ~15 minute pre-recorded video showcasing 3-4 exhibits relevant to the theme of the tour. You are welcome to share the tour with all members of your group! Watch the video before you visit, or stream the video during your visit. Please note this add-on in your self-guided request form.
