On Thursday, April 25 at Stone Zoo, we will be conducting a routine animal escape drill. These drills are an important part of our preparedness training. While the drill is occurring, guests will be asked to move to certain areas within the Zoo for a brief period of time (not to exceed 10 minutes). We will do our best to have minimal impact on the guest experience. We are very dedicated to safety and we appreciate your participation. If you have any questions about what to expect, please do not hesitate to contact us at 617-989-2000 or info@zoonewengland.org.


Playful Paws (Age 2 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. If the weather's nice, we might go for treks outside!
