The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden is now able to offer free field trips to the Zoo for qualifying schools through The Living Classroom Education Access Fund.
This new fund will not only help schools with Zoo daytime field trips,
but it can also be used towards a Nocturnal Adventures Overnight
The Living Classroom Education Access Fund is being made
possible with lead support from The Helen G., Henry F. and Louise
Teacher Dornette Foundation, and founding partners - Time Warner
Cable's "Connect a Million Minds" program, The
John A. Schroth Family Foundation, PNC Bank, Trustee, the Ambassador
Council of the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden, and grants from
Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing North America.
The Cincinnati Zoo welcomed more than 86,000 school children last
year, representing nearly 1,400 schools.
For schools to apply for financial assistance on a daytime field trip
to the Zoo, teachers must submit documentation of financial need as
either a school with 50 percent or more students receiving free or reduced
lunches or as a Title I School. The same online application
must be filled out to apply for the Nocturnal Adventures Overnight
program. More information can be found online at http://cincinnatizoo.org/access.
