Nature Cubs: Feasts with the Beasts

giant panda

Sink your teeth into this class as we learn about our favorite herbivores, carnivores, omnivores and even a few pretty picky eaters! Satisfy your appetite for learning about animal diets with lions, pandas, cows and more.

Nature Cubs preschool classes use interactive learning stations, hands-on activities and crafts, Nature Play, animal artifacts and exciting Zoo walks to engage your preschooler's sense of wonder and curiosity about wildlife and the natural world. There is no animal contact or behind-the-scenes access in Nature Cubs classes.

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

  • Feasts with the Beasts meets once a week for five weeks.
  • Classes meet as Monday, Tuesday or Saturday sections. Choose your day of the week to attend below.
  • There is no class the week of Thanksgiving.
