Discovery Days for Uniformed Groups

Discovery Days for Uniformed Groups at Bristol Zoo Gardens

Bristol Zoo Gardens is very excited to announce the return of our amazing Discovery Days! 

Are you part of a Scout, Guide, Cub, Brownie, Rainbow or Beavers pack or other uniformed group? Come along to the Zoo, have a fantastic day out and gain a unique Bristol Zoo Gardens badge!

Sadly, this will be the final time Discovery Days will be hosted at our award-winning Bristol Zoo Gardens site, before we close to the public on 3 September 2022. (Don’t worry though, our sister site Wild Place Project will remain open until it becomes Bristol Zoo in 2024). So register your interest now, to secure your spot!

Our next Discovery Days take place from 10.00am to 4.00pm on:

  • Saturday 25 June 2022  
  • Sunday 26 June 2022

 What's included?

  • Admission to Bristol Zoo Gardens – see lots of charismatic species in our award-winning gardens
  • Education Session – 45-minute session run by our award-winning education team, with live animals and lots of interactive fun
  • Zoo trail – a specially designed self-guided trail with so much to discover and answers to find, directly linked to the session topics
  • A limited edition woven Bristol Zoo Gardens badge

Our sessions have been designed to allow groups to work towards activity badges, and are linked to the self-guided trail around the Zoo.

Beavers and Rainbows Session:

Pets and Animal Care: Learn about what animals need to stay happy and healthy, both at home and here at the Zoo.

Cubs and Brownies Session:

Endangered Species and Habitats: Discover why we need to protect wildlife, and learn how the Zoo is making a positive impact through conservation and education.

Scouts and Guides Session:

Wildlife Conservation: Find out more about the threats to biodiversity, Bristol Zoological Society’s role in wildlife conservation and how we can all help. 

Don’t miss! – Animal talks and feeds throughout the day or try our challenging ropes course  ZooRopia, set above the animals’ enclosures. (This activity carries an additional charge.)

Feeling curious? Look out for our volunteers around site and pick their brains about your favourite species.
