Cool down with some of the Smithsonian's National Zoo’s favorite watery wonders! Dive in as we learn about otters, sea lions, and frogs! 

Nature Cubs preschool classes use interactive learning stations, hands-on activities and crafts, Nature Play, animal artifacts and exciting Zoo walks to engage your child’s sense of wonder and curiosity about wildlife and the natural world.

"Beach Buddies" will meet once a week for THREE weeks. This listing is for the THURSDAY class section for 2-3 year olds.

Note: Nature Cubs classes are for children and their adult buddies to enjoy together. Infants worn in a carrier or remaining in a stroller/car seat are welcome at no additional charge.

The Thursday section of Beach Buddies is SOLD OUT! Spaces remain in our Tuesday and Wednesday sections.
