Z.E.B.R.A. classes feature live animal encounters in our “up-close” visits with education animals; biofacts to touch and learn about; crafts and hands-on activities; stories, games and a snack. Some classes include a hike in the zoo (weather permitting)!

Classes for ZooTots, Pre-K Zooper Kids, and K-1st Grade will resume in January.

Follow this link for the Fall 2014 (October-December) class schedules for ZooTots, Zoo Explorers and Roots & Shoots.
