Parents can register their child for one or all of the programs in the 4-part series. Tickets can be purchased at the gate upon entry or online through our website.  Registration is limited to 10 children per session.  Early registration is recommended, and ticket availability at the gate depends on enrollment as of that time.  


The program fee includes all activity supplies for the program, and are in addition to Zoo admission, which is free for members.  The program fee for children is $6. There is no program fee for adults and children under 2.  Program fees and gate admission can be paid online or at the time of entry.  Please bring your e-ticket or receipt to the program to show payment. 


The ZooLittles program will meet in the Event Tent and may move to other parts of the zoo to accomplish the themed activities planned.   From the entrance, enter the path to the right and walk past the Amazonia rainforest, past the wolves, and you will find the garden on your right before the Event Tent on the large hill.   You can call ahead and ask at the front gate for updates on location.   


In the case of rain, we will announce an alternate location at the front gate.  Depending on the forecast, we may use the Kiwanis shelter, event tent, or move it entirely indoors in one of our classrooms. Cancellation is also possible due to severe weather. Notifications will be made via Remind 101 at least one hour prior to program start time for pre-registered participants, or will be announced at the front gate.  Programs cancelled due to weather can be rescheduled for another time.

Please dress for the weather. We recommend children wear play clothes and closed toed shoes, and bring sunscreen and water.

COVID update:

 Weather permitting, the program will be conducted in a sheltered outdoor space. Please limit the number of siblings and adult chaperones attending to keep the Zoolittle group sizes small enough for social distancing.  Adults and siblings 3 years and older are required to wear masks unless social distanced outside. Hand sanitizer will be provided.
