December: 13th - Zoo Toy Shop

*Virtual Class  

Zoo Toy Shop introduces students to all the ways animals have fun at the Greenville Zoo! During this program, we will define animal enrichment, investigate various zoo toys, and even have up-close encounters with fun-loving education animal ambassadors.

December’s class is a virtual class due to constraints with classrooms. Class will be held on Tuesday 12/13 during the 11:00-12:30 time slot for all ages and a zoom link will be emailed to you prior to the start of class. If you are currently signed up for this class and the digital format or time is an issue please reach out so we can discuss options for you. I apologize for the disruption in our regular programming and we will return back to zoo grounds and regular class times in January.
