Nothing brings out the natural curiosity of a child the way animals do! With Critter Classes your child will have the opportunity to learn about wildlife, up-close and hands-on. Each class focuses on a different animal group. Games, crafts, and age-appropriate STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) activities will engage and entertain, letting learning happen naturally. Each session includes a live animal encounter. Supervised outings to zoo exhibits may be included, weather permitting. This program is for ages 5 to 7 years old.
