Caterpillar Club

Saturdays from 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Join us on a wild adventure of outdoor learning and discovery in Caterpillar Club! From curious toddlers to inquisitive preschoolers, we've crafted engaging and educational experiences that will ignite a love for wildlife and nature in your little ones!

Our specially curated programs lead your child on their nature journey from 12 months up to 4 years old and are designed to spark curiosity, promote sensory exploration, and build social skills in a fun and enriching environment. Classes will be primarily held indoors during the colder months and transition to outdoor locations as it warms up!

Designed for early learners and their grown-ups, these 60-minute programs require a minimum of one caregiver to attend per child. Classes are capped at 20 participants.

Classes are grouped by age. One-year-olds meet the first Saturday of the month, 2-year-olds on the second Saturday, and 3-4-year-olds on the fourth Saturday.

Program Price: $15 per person (member) / $20 per person (non-member)

Participants are welcome to enjoy the Zoo before or after the program concludes. Admission is included with your program ticket. Please present your receipt at the admission booth window for entry.
