Come See Reptiles At Our Sanctuary!

Baby the alligator loves field trips!

Want to get your students out of the classroom and up close & personal with some live animals? 

Our field trips are a great way to do that! 

Field trips at the Phoenix Herpetological Society include a behind-the-scenes look at a reptile sanctuary and its inhabitants.  On the two hour tour, students will learn about over 1700 reptiles including:


PHS Field Trips are very hands-on and interactive; we give students the chance to meet, touch, and interact with as many animals as possible while teaching about adaptations, life histories, and considerations that we must take into account by having them at our sanctuary. We also teach about desert safety and what to do if they ever see a rattlesnake in the wild.

It is definitely a unique experience that students will not forget.  They get the chance to hold a lizard and a snake...for many kids, this is the first (and maybe the only!) time they will ever do that.  They learn about safety and responsibility of having a reptile as a pet and they learn why reptiles are such amazing animals. 

Our field trips have been the spark that ignited a passion for reptiles in many young people and we are proud to offer field trips all year long.  Cost is $10 per child and $7.50 per chaperone.
