This fall is all about animal adaptations! Each week we will take a closer look at types of adaptations animals have to help them survive in their habitats, find food and more! Join us for one class or all six!
Oct. 9, 10, 11: Animal Coverings
Have you ever wondered why different animals have different types of skin and coverings? From feathers to fur, we will explore these animal coverings and learn how they help the animals who wear them.
Oct. 16, 17, 18: Protection
How would you protect yourself out in the wild? Would you wear a heavy shell or some spikes? Come learn how animals around the world protect themselves!
Oct. 23, 24, 25: Camouflage and Colors
Some animals are brightly colored and others like to blend in. This week we will learn how coloring helps animals survive in the wild and explore the colors here in the zoo!
Oct. 30, 31, Nov. 1: Yucky Stuff
Animals are not always as clean as we think but some go above and beyond to be extra yucky! From animals who cover themselves in rotten food to scare away predators, to animals who use poop to attract their food, come learn about these stinky and yucky creatures here at the zoo!
Nov. 6, 7, 8: Feet
Have you ever noticed a duck’s webbed feet or seen the hooves on a giraffe? Explore with us why all these animal feet are so different and find out how those adaptations assist animals in the wild.
Nov. 13, 14, 15: Beaks and Talons
Birds of prey are specialized birds that carry their forks and knives with them all the time! There is no need for silverware when you have sharp talons and beaks! Join us to learn all about these powerful tools and see some up close!
NOTICE: Little Peeps classes are for a preschooler and up to two big buddy adults. The program is built for Peeps and Big Buddies to participate together. Siblings and other children are not allowed unless they are restricted to a stroller or a carrier on the big buddy at all times. We are in a small classroom, and want our Little Peeps participants to be able to fully enjoy the class!
