Description

Come and explore the zoo and have a fun time learning and meeting our animals with our Pint-Size Explorers program. This session of classes aligns with National Next Generation Science Standards for kindergarteners so we can support what your explorers are learning at school. 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. 

This program is for children ages 4 to 6.

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