New for 2020!

This new, interactive Zoo Explorers program will focus on one unifying topic for each series. During the Spring series, your child will discover how animals are classified.  Scientists love to study animals and through grouping them together by similarities it is easy to see how animals are closely related to each other or completely different! Through up-close animal encounters, behind the scenes adventures and hands-on activities your child will see first-hand how and why animals are grouped together.


What does a tiny dart frog and a five hundred-pound tortoise have in common? They are both ‘cold-blooded’. We’ll explore exactly what that means in this program focusing on reptiles and amphibians! We will get a chance to see why some reptiles are called ‘living dinosaurs’ while others are very sensitive to even the smallest changes in their habitats. Participants will also have a chance to meet native and exotic reptiles in a private encounter.

Designed for 6-12 year-olds
