Nature Cubs: Zoo-per Heroes


From super strength and speed to (nearly) X-ray vision, there’s no end to the incredible abilities of the Smithsonian's National Zoo’s superman-imals!  Learn about the most amazing zoo-perheroes of the animal kingdom, and make your own zoo-perhero cape to take home!

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.

Nature Cubs classes meet once a week for five weeks. Choose the day of the week you wish to attend during the registration process.
