Morning sessions can start as early as 9:30 AM and afternoon sessions can start as early as 12:30 PM. We are flexible with our times, please call or email to schedule class.

As in past years it is a $1.00 charge per student attending. Due to increasing class sizes and demand we are currently only able to offer 1 class per student.  Please have the funds with you at the time of your visit.  We will teach regardless of the weather, but please recognize that poor outdoor conditions may cause us to discuss modifications to the schedule at the time of your visit.  Students must dress for outdoor conditions!!!!


We are looking forward to teaching you and your students and hope to see you this year.  Please feel free to call 507 328-7340 with any further questions.



$1.00 per student with no charge for chaperones. For example, a class of 40 students with 3 chaperones would cost $40.00.

Class Size:

Class sizes are limited to 40 students. If you have a larger class we will split them into smaller groups and teach a class to each group.

When visiting don't forget to plan time to visit the Zollman Zoo and explore the Path of Imagination natural playscape area.

Zoo Visits Without Classes:

We ask that schools/groups that are not interested in classes but want to visit Zollman Zoo to call ahead of time. There are no fees for Zoo visits.
