KinderZoo is a program for preschoolers and their grown-ups to play, discover, and learn in a fun, interactive way.  Join us as we explore different animals and habitats, using games, BioFacts, and engaging, age-appropriate activities. Each class will also include the opportunity to meet an ambassador animal up-close and learn all about them!
