Playful Paws (Age 18 months to 3 years)

This playgroup is as much for caregivers as it is for “cubs.” Get out of the house and bring your little one to the Zoo for open play and animal exploration. At each class we'll learn through looking, touching and movement. Possibilities are endless and may include storytimes, animal encounters, biofacts, simple crafts and more!
