This sensory-based program focuses on our younger guests. During each one-hour session, we will focus on a different letter of the alphabet and children will enjoy a focused animal exhibit visit, opportunities for sensory exploration, a live animal encounter, unstructured nature play, and free art time.
Adult parents/caregivers will also explore important skills to help their children get the most out of visits to nature-related places.
