Day at The Zoo

The Day at the Zoo program provides students an opportunity to explore and discover the Detroit Zoological Society when school funding is not available. School groups who are awarded funding through the DATZ program will receive admission, a transportation stipend, and an educational program. The Detroit Zoological Society’s Day at the Zoo (DATZ) is funded by generous donors, including those who have contributed to the David K. Page Fund.

Funding cannot be guaranteed and is limited.
