1st-6th Grade – Family classes

Looking for an educational and fun experience the whole family can enjoy together? Our family class is made for you! These 3-hour Saturday classes are designed for families of at least one adult and one child, 1st – 6th grade. Each day will have a specific theme and each class will include an animal encounter, activities and/or games and a guided tour through part of the zoo to enjoy together as a family! Each class in a series is independent but also fits into a larger theme. Join us for one or all four!

This spring our family classes will focus on animal enrichment. Enrichment helps satisfy both the physical and psychological needs of animals and changes throughout their day or week. Each class will focus on a different type of enrichment and will include the chance to see some enrichments in action in the zoo!
