Important Note about our Family Programs

Many of our family programs involve a series of topics that are offered on multiple dates at the Zoo, so these programs are best suited for Zoo members with current memberships. Anyone who wishes to attend these programs without a current Zoo membership will be required to pay Zoo admission on each separate visit, and admission is not covered by enrollment in a family program. If you don’t have a Zoo membership, click here to get Zoo membership info or to purchase a Zoo membership today.

Programs for 6 months to 3 years

Moms, dads or any adult with a child in a stroller, can explore the Zoo with an educator and both adult and child will learn something new. Wear comfortable shoes; this class visits a different exhibit each time.
