Preschool Adventures

Preschool Adventures

Preschool Adventures programs include fun craft activities.

(ages 3-5)

These 90-minute programs focus on a special animal or area of the Zoo and present opportunities for adult/child pairs to make discoveries together.  Programs include a lesson, activities, a craft, and an up close program animal encounter.

Members: $14 per child

Non-members: $42 per child (includes Zoo admission)

*Children must be accompanied by an adult.  No younger or older siblings.*

Due to increasing costs associated with registration processing, there will be a $5 service fee for all requests to change the day or time of your class after your original registration.  The fee will be charged for each child registered.  We thank you for your understanding.
