ZooCub Classes

ZooCub classes will explore the A-Z’s of animal species and examine topics like animal textures and where animals live, with a different class each week.  Every class includes a lesson, craft, up-close animal encounter, and a tour of the Zoo!  The classes for children age 3 and younger are designed for an adult and child.  Children age 4 and up are welcome to attend with an adult or on their own.  Each adult is welcome to accompany up to two children.

  • Love this zoo! Great place to get a walk in and the animals are everywhere! The museum/indoor part is very educational too. Has a lot of shade for when it's hot out. Very clean. Friendly staff.

  • The museum gives you a break from the sun on hot summer days and has a great selection of animal exhibits from around the world. ¬†The zoo keeps growing and adding new animal habitats or improving existing ones. ¬†Membership offers reciprocal benefits to other zoos around the country.
