Pint-Sized Explorers

Pint-Sized Explorers are children ages 4-6 years old.


Red River Zoo


Come and explore the zoo and have a fun time learning and meeting our animals with our Pint-Size Explorers program. These classes are designed to support what the kiddos are learning at school while also being fun. These classes are about two and a half hours of a little bit of learning and a lot of fun so we hope you join us at the Red River Zoo as a Pint-Size Explorer. Classes are formatted to meet national science standards, and the associated standard is written at the end of each class description. 

This program is for children ages 4 to 6.

Program fees are $20 for Zoo Members/ $25 for non-Zoo Members


This class runs from 3 PM to 5:30 PM. 


September 6th- The zoo is a great place to learn and explore the animal kingdom. During this class, we will be using our powers of observation to learn what plants and animals need to survive. (K-LS1-1) 

October 4th- Many plants and animals (including humans) change the environments they live in to meet their needs. In this class, we will explore some of the animals that are masters of environmental architecture. (K-ESS2-2)

November 1st- As winter approaches it is very important that we keep an eye on the weather for the well-being of our animals. This class will help us explore local weather, and how we prepare the animals for those changes. (K-ESS3-2)
