Little Cub Club Weekend Classes


Children ages 3-5 can join us each month for a unique opportunity to learn about the world's wildlife up-close and hands-on! Each month focuses on a different animal, exploring its world through personal contact, games, crafts, imagination play, and age-appropriate science activities.  

Two sessions of Little Cub Club are offered each month, on the second Saturday of the month from 9:30am- 10:30am and 11:30am-12:30pm. All sessions take place in the Bill and Donna DeFouw Education Center.

This program is designed with emerging independence in mind.  Parents are welcome to drop-off their child, or stay and observe, at their preference.
