Nature Explorers

Last Saturday of the month, during January – September
10 am to 2 pm

Get wild about nature at the Sacramento Zoo! Thanks to a private donation, the zoo is excited to offer a new way for young nature explorers and their grown-ups to investigate the wilderness in their own backyard. Join the zoo in an open play environment, the last Saturday of the month anytime between 10 am to 2 pm. We will be reading stories, playing, and exploring the wonders of the natural world with a new topic each month. Activities are included with zoo admission and story-time is at 10:30 am  and 12:30 pm.
