Biofact Kits for rent:
We rent Biofact kits.  These kits are ideal for classes who missed out on booking one of the Saskatoon Zoo Society’s excellent guided tour programs. These kits are rented on a first-come, first-served basis.
Please note: The biofact kits require advance booking.  Please call or email to book.  The kits consist of rubber feet, tracks, scats and other animal artefacts (horns, antlers, feather or fur-vary by kit). They are available to bring into your classroom for one to two weeks depending on availability. The rental fee is $25.00, $20.00 of which is a returnable deposit. There are two kits to choose from: carnivores and birds of prey and hoofed animals. Call 975-3395 for more information.

If you are a teacher from the Saskatoon Public School Division or the Saskatoon Catholic School Division,
the Saskatoon Zoo Society has developed special kits for teachers that you can order directly from your school board.

Here is the information we have received from the Saskatoon Public School board on the kits:
Rental of the biofact kits are available from the Saskatoon Public School Board Central Office. There are three biofact (biological artefact) boxes available for loan. Telephone 306-683-8329 or 306-683-8301 to book. Carnivore Biofact Box 1073482;  Herbivore Biofact Box 1074679;  Bird Biofact Box 1074685
Rental is free for the school-board kits.

For rental of kits from the Saskatoon Catholic School Board, please contact their school board to be directed to the appropriate area. Rental is free for the school-board kits.
