Welcome to our Neighborhood
Premier Credit Union has partnered with The Blank Park Zoo to bring you a Zoo Keeper’s insight to the residents at the Blank Park Zoo. Look for and scan the QR codes found around the zoo to learn more about the animals. An example of the code you are looking for is located on the left-hand side of this page. Simply scan it with your QR reader on your smart phone and you will be directed to that animal’s webpage.
In addition to the QR Program, you can enter to win monthly and quarterly drawings. Simply click on the button located on this page to register to win a family 4-pack of tickets to the zoo or one of the Premier Credit Union Blank Park Zoo Experiences.
What is the Experience? You can choose from either a guided tour for up to 4-people with a behind the scenes experience or an Onsite visit to the school or organization of your choice.
Tours: Get to know the animals up close and personal on your guided tour of the zoo, you will even get to go behind the scenes on one of your stops along the way. Tours are limited to seasonal availability and times; they must be booked a week in advance.
Onsite Visits: Turn your class into a real wild place with live animals from the Zoo! We will bring four education animals onsite and share age appropriate information with students. In this very popular program, students will have an opportunity to touch and ask questions about the animals. Presentations are suitable for groups up to 35 students and are usually between 30 to 45 minutes long.
Onsite visits are limited to a 30-mile radius of the Des Moines Metro Area.
