Nature Cubs: Trunks to Tails

elephant touches trunk to its forehead

What could you do with ears 3 feet wide or a tail that can wrap around branches? From the tops of their heads to the tips of their toes, animals are pretty amazing! Explore the extraordinary features that animals use to survive.

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.
