Sign Up Today for Nature’s Buddies

Join us for Nature’s Buddies: Signs of Winter. Some classes begin Jan. 21, so register today!

Nature’s Buddies is back with ALL NEW CLASSES!  Engage your child’s wonder and curiosity about nature in this 3-part series. Learn to guide your 2- to 4-year-old in nature play through exciting hands-on learning experiences at the zoo that can be incorporated into nature play at home. During Nature’s Buddies: Signs of Winter, discover how to find the signs of animals in winter as you search the land, water, and sky for clues. You will even meet a live zoo animal at each class!

Grown-ups must come ready to play. Class is rain or shine and considerable time is spent outside, so please dress appropriately.

To ensure a fun, interactive learning experience, class size is limited to 10 toddler/adult pairs.   Registration is for one child and one adult for all three classes in the series.
