2-5 years old with a caregiver
$5 per child ($4 per child for members), adults and siblings under 2 years old are free

Nature Storytime has many opportunities for you and your little one to explore and appreciate the outdoors, such as live animal visits, hikes, stories, and hands-on activities. This week we will explore how animals can eat plants, meat, or both.

Nature Storytime takes place Wednesday mornings and every other Sunday for one hour. Each session includes indoor and outdoor activities – so make sure to dress for the weather!

Please join us the day of the event!

Have a 4-5 year old that is ready to try a drop-off program? Take a look at our Nature Tykes Preschool Program that also runs on Wednesday mornings.

Connect to nature — and each other!

Are you looking for something to do together on an upcoming weekend? From time to time, everyone needs to get out of the house and into the wild. Our all-ages programs are offered on select weekends throughout the year and are fun and engaging for kids and grownups alike.  Explore bugs and bats, take a magical moonlit walk, or see our birds of prey in action.

Our programs are affordable with rates for both individuals and families. Pre-register to save money or come on spur of the moment (though spaces are limited for some programs).

In addition to programs for all ages, we also offer "kids only" programs. If you have a toddler or preschooler (Ages 1-5), take a look at our programs for tots and tykes. Summer and school break camps are also available for kids of all ages. And don't forget to explore our all ages Birds of Prey programs!

Can't make a scheduled program? Drop by any day - including weekends - during daylight hours to visit our outdoor raptor enclosures. You can even check out our other live animals in the Critter House (be sure to check up-to-date hours listed on our Critter House page).
