Insider Trip Tips:
Where Can We Go?
Reservations are required for all programs, including self-guided visits to exhibits, in order to ensure that all visitors have the best experience possible.
Please visit reserved exhibits and programs only.
What about lunch?
You can bring your lunch (brown paper bag please, no lunch boxes) or buy from our Mario's Cafe (option to buy lunch not available at Cumming Nature Center). We'll provide a place for your group to eat lunch at no extra charge (Sept. - June only)…but be sure to schedule this when you call! Click here for more information about ordering group lunches.
What about chaperones?
Make reservations for as many chaperones as you want. We recommend at least one chaperone for every 10 students. For every 5 students, 1 adult is admitted free. Additional adults pay the student rate. (Different rules apply for School Overnights.)
Chaperones are required to remain with their groups and are responsible for appropriate behavior of all students. Groups exhibiting inappropriate behavior may be asked to leave.
Confirmation and Cancellations
You'll receive confirmation materials in the mail.
If you need to cancel your visit, please call (585) 697-1942 as soon as possible.
