Stroller Safari is a special introduction to the Zoo for our littlest guests. 

Pack up the stroller, put on your walking shoes and bring your little one on an early learning adventure as we stroll through the Zoo.  This special class is designed for children ages 0-3 and a caregiver.  Make new friends while you visit animal exhibits, meet a friendly animal ambassador, and explore the animal world with all your senses!

Stroller Safari will meet monthly 8:45am – 9:30am.  This 45 minute program will occur rain or shine, please dress yourself and your little one for the day’s weather.  You will meet the Zoo Educator outside the front gate at 8:30am – the program begins promptly at 8:45am.
