Special Needs Groups

The Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium is proud to offer free admission for special needs facilities.

If your facility serves individuals with developmental disabilities or who are mentally or physically challenged, please complete the Field Trip Reservation Form and send a letter on your letterhead to:

Terry DeIuliis, Assistant to the President
Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium
One Wild Place
Pittsburgh, PA 15206

In your letter, please include the date of your Zoo visit, the number of people in your group (including chaperones), and a brief description of your group.

Please include a self-addressed envelope with your request. Allow three weeks for processing.

Upon receiving your letter, you will be sent a letter for free admission to the Zoo.

If your group will be visiting in the month of May, the Zoo recommends scheduling a Monday or Tuesday when the Zoo is least crowded.
