Interact with the animals, watch feeding time, hear a story and participate in seasonal activities. Wear closed-toe shoes and clothes that can get a bit dirty and bring a towel or blanket. Treat buckets will be available for $1. If you’d like, bring a picnic lunch and stay for your own feeding time after Toddler Time is done. This activity is intended for kids ages 1-5 and a caregiver. Tickets are $15 for one adult/child pair, and additional children are $5 each.
