Guided tours are a popular choice for many groups! At Pine Grove Zoo, guided tours give participants an up-close glimpse into the extraordinary personal and natural histories of the Zoo’s animals. As your group is escorted through the Zoo by an animal educator they will encounter a variety of native and exotic species of animals and get actively involved in touching artifacts and getting answers to all their animal questions. Tours are age specific and achieve MN State Academic Standards.
Guided tours can be general or focus on a single animal or topic. They are available throughout the Zoo season and take between 45 minutes and one hour depending on the age and interest of the group. Tour groups are limited to a minimum of 10, maximum of 25 people for the best possible tour experience (large groups will be split into several tours).
