Explore Zoo Atlanta with Adventure Cubs
Calling all Adventure Cubs, ages 0-5, and their favorite grownups for a morning of exploration, learning and fun! Embark on a new journey each month with a Zoo Educator as families get to learn and play together. Spend time taking part in engaging activities that will get you and your little one moving and creating. Each month, young explorers will learn about a new animal and will create a take-away memory that ties into the theme. At the end of the program, participants will receive a fun-to-go activity to do in the Zoo together. For more info, click here.
