Fees & Policies

  • Zoo membership discounted rate will automatically be applied to your reservation when you register for the program on the Zoo website and log in with your membership username or password.
  • Infants (0-12 months) may accompany the registered adult participant for free.
  • Please call the EdVenture Department at 719-424-7827 if you are having difficulty with your registration. This is a premium Zoo program and therefore members are still required to pay a discounted member fee to register.
  • REFUND POLICY:
    • If the zoo closes and/or cancels your program due to unforeseen circumstances (e.g. inclement weather), an EdVenture Program coordinator will contact the group leader and issue a full refund to all program participants. The group leader will be responsible for notifying the group participants of these changes.
    • A full refund can be issued if a written or verbal request is made at least 48-hours before the program date. No refunds will be issued if a participant does not attend and has not submitted a refund request within the 48-hour window.
  • PARKING: During March – September the Zoo is in peak season with high volumes of Zoo guests. We suggest all Stroller Safari registrants arrive at the Zoo at 9:00 a.m. to secure a parking space. Zoo admission is included with your Stroller Safari registration. Guests may enter the Zoo and plan to meet at the elevation sign outside the front gate at 10:05 a.m.
  • Disclaimer: Participants will not be reimbursed if any portion of the prescheduled program is missed due to parking conflicts.

 
Space is limited; therefore pre-registration is required.
