Programs for Families and Young Children

Become a Wild Adventurer - Attend a Zoo Program!

Wild Adventures Education Programs are amazing opportunities for children to learn more about animal life at the Zoo and beyond! Themes focusing on habitats, survival and conservation are introduced monthly. Programs may include live animal encounters, hands-on activities (stories, puppets, games, videos, and arts & crafts), behind-the-scenes tours and adventures on Zoo grounds!
