Little Explorers: Ages 1–3 and a Caregiver

Program Description

This sensory based program is just for our younger guests! During each one-hour session, we will focus on a different Zoo-related theme and children will enjoy a focused animal exhibit visit, a live animal encounter, an active musical activity, and learning through nature play!

Adult parents/caregivers will also explore important skills to help their children get the most out of their visits to nature-related places.
