FREE Field Trips for Maryland Students

Travel beyond the boundaries of your classroom walls with a field trip to The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore. Bring your classroom lessons to life for students while traversing the wilds of Africa, exploring the sub-Arctic tundra and venturing through the caves, forests, meadows and wetlands of Maryland.

  • Find out if your school group is eligible for the free field trip program.
  • Do a planning visit before you bring your students!
  • Reschedule an existing field trip reservation.

Teachers must reserve their field trip in advance to participate. Please allow up to two weeks for processing.

Special project-based learning opportunity for 3rd-grade classes from Baltimore City Schools! Click here for details.
