The St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park proudly offers a variety of educational programs for children of all ages.

Give your students the opportunity to gain a hands-on understanding of the natural world by booking an out-of-the-classroom experience your pre-school through high school kids will never forget.

We’re passionate about education and safety. The educators at The St. Augustine Alligator Farm are highly-trained zoo education instructors. All staff have passed federal background checks. For public programs, we maintain a 1:12 ratio at all times while children participate in supervised activities throughout their stay. During school programs, it is the responsibility of the chaperones to maintain proper student behavior.

Our education staff members have been fingerprinted by the St. Johns County School District and are approved vendors in St. Johns, Volusia, and Putnam counties in accordance with the Jessica Lunsford Act. Our Zoo Camp instructors have been fingerprinted with DCF.

Your school’s visit to The Alligator Farm is much more than a field trip—it’s an educational excursion! Students discover exotic wildlife, and of course reptiles, from around the globe as they trek through the 125 year old Park. Your students will learn about the importance of our local ecosystems and the biodiversity both large and small that make up the State of Florida. All programs are aligned to Florida’s Sunshine State Standards. Please see below for the list of standards we cover during our different field trips and how you can craft your next trip to fit your student’s needs.
