This academic year, the Zoo is offering Virtual ZOOventure Classes in addition to our onsite programs. Up-close animal encounters, games, crafts, and activities are all part of this exciting virtual learning environment. Activities will use materials typically found in the home and caregivers will receive a materials list one week in advance of the program. Offered September through May, program descriptions and dates are listed below. Registration is required one week in advance. Children from the same household must be registered individually to participate. Programs will be facilitated as whole group sessions in Zoom.
