Fun in the Forest & Family Garden
Join in on the fun in the Children’s Enchanted Forest or the Family Garden during your visit at the zoo! Our Mesker Park Zoo Docents will provide interactive experiences for children of all ages on select Saturdays during the late spring, summer, and early fall seasons. These activities are seasonal and weather dependent, so check the zoo calendar or call ahead if you want to be sure to catch them. Activities will commence in the Children’s Enchanted Forest stage area or in the Family Garden area, and will include stories, plays, music, crafts, animal biofacts, and live animal encounters.
ZooLittles is a weekly series for preschoolers (ages 4-5) at the Zoo. Children will enjoy learning about plants and animals while experiencing the natural world around them in an interactive program. Programs in the 6-session series may include physical activities, animal visits, explorations, stories, or crafts.
2023 Fall Series – ZooLittles will be converted into a weekly spring and fall 4-part half-day series, similar to our Camp Zoofari Minis half day camp. This will begin in fall of 2023 – please refer to the “Day Camps” tab for more information and how to register.
