Playful Paws (Age 18 months to 3 years)

Please check this page again in August for the fall playgroup schedule.

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! If the weather’s nice, we may even go for romps outside! Each monthly session features new animals and activities, so join us for as many as you can!
