Recommended for families with children ages 5 and up
Learn about the importance of enrichment for the zoo’s animals. Cosley Zoo’s animals receive enrichment every day. Enrichment lets our animals make choices and exhibit natural behaviors such as climbing, hunting for food, and using their senses. In this workshop, your family will make enrichment activities for some of the zoo’s animals, and then we’ll head out into the zoo to see enrichment in action! Each of the monthly sessions is different, so join us all season long! After the program, you’re welcome to stay and tour the zoo on your own. Register by June 22.
This family program is recommended for ages 5 and up.
Program will be held indoors in the Kiebler Room, located on the second floor of the large barn. This space is accessible only by stairs.
Cosley Zoo will be following State COVID-19 mitigation measures in place at the time of the program.
This class requires a minimum number of participants in order to run. Registration fees are non-refundable unless the zoo cancels the program, in which case participants will be notified and will receive a full refund.
