ZooMontana Welcomes Home School Students and Parents to Learn at the Zoo!

With discounted educator admission rates and multiple program options, the zoo is a great place to bring educational lessons to life while having fun!


Reduced Admission Rate:

If you are coming for a visit with a group, home school families are eligible for our school group discounted admission rate of $3.50 per person.  Advanced registration required to receive this special rate.  Contact our Education Department at education@zoomontana.org or call 406.652.8100 ext. 215.  Of course, ZooMember admission is always free!

(Group rates not valid on special Zoo Event days.) 


Programs: Our first Homeschool Series!

Homeschool families are invited to join ZooMontana’s awesome education staff for a series of homeschool classes at the zoo! These classes will happen once a month for the school year, and will cover a different animal- and nature-related topic each month. Each class will include an animal encounter, educational lesson or activity, and walks around the zoo with the educators, who will make sure everyone has fun all while learning!

The purchase of one ticket includes all 5 sessions! Here are the dates for the classes:
Jan. 24th, 10:00am-12:00pm
Feb. 21st, 10:30am-12:30pm
Mar. 28th, 10:00am-12:00pm
Apr. 25th, 10:00am-12:00pm
May 23rd, 10:00am-12:00pm

The whole family is welcome to follow along, but the classes are designed for students aged 5 and up. Tickets only need to be purchased for students 5 and up who are attending the class and the rest of the family’s zoo admission is included in the students’ fee.

Interested in the series? Email kelam@zoomontana.org or call 406-652-8100 ext. 215 for the password to purchase tickets!
