On a cloudy and , thankfully, dry Tuesday  693 transitional kindergarten and kindergarten students were bussed to the Oakland Zoo.  Thirty five Oakland Rotary volunteers guided the students into the zoo, some accompanied the classes to the various Zoo venues and the rest helped set up and distribute lunch.

KinderPrep’s goal is to make our TK field trips the easiest ones the teachers will ever do.  We organized and pay for everything including zoo entrance, transportation and student lunches.  Oakland Zoo staff are incredibly helpful and accommodating.  As the pictures attest, a great time was had by all.


Oakland Rotary Volunteers Make KinderPrep Zoo Field Trip a Success

On April 26, 2016 eleven buses each holding 70 students and chaperones descended on the Oakland Zoo.  Twenty three Oakland Rotary volunteers escorted them to and around the grounds and served lunch.  The weather was gorgeous and a great time was had by all.  The hardest working folks were the goats in the contact area who had their busiest day ever.  

Thanks to Oakland Rotarian and Zoo docent Michael Bruck for helping keep them on their feet.
