Adults and their young children come together in this fun and unique program where you’ll meet other zoo families while enjoying morning refreshments. After the morning mingle, you will embark on an exciting walkabout through the zoo and even meet animals up close! Zoo educators will facilitate parents learning early childhood education techniques to connect families with nature through colors, shapes, and play. Class fee is for one child and one accompanying adult. Additional children require an additional fee. Please respect age restrictions and do not bring older or younger siblings to class.
