Log Cabin

This class is designed to introduce your 2 - 3 year old to the animal kingdom while providing ongoing interaction with zoo staff and other children.  Animal concepts are taught through hands-on learning including crafts, song and dance, games and more.  We will also have an animal visitor every week.  An adult must attend the class with the child.  Only registered siblings of program age may be accommodated.

We offer a 6-week series focusing on a highlighted topic.  Each program in a series builds upon knowledge from the week before so attendance to all classes is recommended.  Click here for a list of topics, dates and more information!
