Experience something WILD with your students on a Wildlife Images' field trip!
Every year Wildlife Images sees hundreds of students from all over Southern Oregon and beyond on field trips where they get the opportunity to see native wildlife up close. Visits like these are important not only to see these amazing animals, but we hope to build a new love and respect for all wildlife as we inspire the next generation of animal advocates.
Guided field trips provide insight and interesting facts about the important work of saving wildlife in our own backyard.
Learn about our mission of saving wildlife by meeting our animal ambassadors, learn what it takes to be a wildlife rehabilitator and discover ways you can help save wildlife with us.

All field trips must be paid in a single payment.
Q: Who can attend a field trip?
A: We happily offer field trips to both public and private schools, charter schools, home schools, and alternative schools. Wildlife Images does, however, reserve the right to determine if a request falls within what we consider an academic facility and field trips are subject to availability.
Groups must be at least 12 people. However, groups will be split at 30 or larger with a maximum size of 50 people. For larger groups, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: When are field trips offered?
A: Field trips are available year-round, Monday through Friday. Field trips are subject to availability so we encourage teachers to book early!
Q: Where does the field trip start?
A: All field trip vehicles (this includes all buses, vans, and personal vehicles) must park in our overflow (maintenance) parking. The entrance is the driveway south of the main gate - signs point the way. Please make sure everyone gathers here, not the front entrance. There is a fenced in area called Mountain Lion Meadows which is an excellent place to gather both students and chaperones prior to the tour.
Q: What can we expect on the day of our field trip?
A: Once you have arrived, a team member will meet you to determine final headcount and collect payment - a receipt will be sent to the email provided at check-in. They will also give a short welcome and review the park rules. From there your guided field trip tour will begin - have fun!
Q: What animals will we get to see?
A: Wildlife Images is home to animals both great and small - from impressive brown bears and elusive wolves to bobcats, badgers, and several birds of prey! There is no guarantee you will see every animal. Each day at Wildlife Images is different. The time of year, weather, training sessions, and feedings can impact what animals are out and about during your visit. Only permanent residents are on display to the public. Wildlife patients are not visible anywhere on the tour.
Q: How will I know my field trip is booked?
A: After filling out the Field Trip Reservation Form you will receive an email containing a confirmation. If the dates/times you requested are unavailable we will be in contact by phone.
Q: Can I call to ask about the status of my request?
A: We honor field trip requests in the order they are received and we will be in contact with you within 2-5 business days of your request. If it is past 5 business days please email email@example.com.
