There are a lot of new faces, flippers, paws and claws at the Smithsonian's National Zoo! Get to know some of the new arrivals, from baby gorilla Moke to male elephant Spike!

FONZ preschool classes are designed for children ages 3 to 5 to discover a whole new view of the Zoo. “Adult-and-me” format classes use interactive learning stations, hands-on activities and crafts, Nature Play and exciting Zoo walks to engage your child’s sense of wonder and curiosity about wildlife and the natural world.

Note: FONZ preschool classes are for children and their adult buddies to enjoy together.
