Looking for a fun way to engage and learn with your child? Join us for the new Family Program! Geared towards family groups with children ranging from 8 to 14 years old, we'll guide your family through an experience that will test your scientific knowledge, challenge your teamwork, and nurture your nature know-how. It will be a memorable and hands-on adventure into the animal kingdom that you can share with your child (or two)!

Family Programs are open to families with children ages 8 to 14 years old. All family groups must have at least one adult for every three children.

Fee covers one adult and one child; $25 per additional participant (adult or child).
