How to Schedule
Advanced registration is required at least 3 weeks in advance. Use our online form to make your request or contact our Education Program Coordinator at 412-258-9439. Requests from either source will be handled in the order they are received. Have several dates in mind in case your preferred date is unavailable.
A non-refundable deposit of $150.00 is required for programs held at the National Aviary, due within 10 days of reservation (cash, check or credit cards accepted). Final payment is due upon arrival. All other program reservations require full payment within 10 days of reservation. If deposit or payment is not received, your reservation is subject to cancellation.
The National Aviary requires 1 adult chaperone for every 10 students for K—12 groups, and 1 adult chaperone for every 5 students for preschool groups. These chaperones, plus the bus driver, receive complimentary admission.
Schools will be charged for the number of people present on the program day, less the amount of deposit. No more than 10% can be added to the total number of attendees given at the time of reservation, and final counts are due 10 days prior to the program date.
A confirmation and program agreement will be emailed to you. Your reservation is final only after the National Aviary’s receipt of your signed contract.
