Our 3’s program is designed to spark curiosity and appreciation for the natural world in children age 3 with their favorite grown-up. Each class includes art, independent playtime, group activities, story time, and live plant or animal encounters.
Cost: $15/child. For each child registered, one adult gets in free. $15/adult above that.
A baby zebra is a foal, a baby giraffe is a calf, and a baby penguin is a chick. Visit Como’s newest arrivals and learn how moms and dads care for their babies. We’ll also play, make art, and read a story.

Home, sweet home. Everybody needs a home; it could be a nest, a burrow, a shell or a hole in a tree. Learn where animals live by crawling through a tunnel, digging a burrow, taking a “home” discovery hike and more!

Zookeeper for a Day
Imagine yourself as a zookeeper! Dress up in uniform as you pretend to feed the animals, clean up after them, and provide checkups to keep them healthy. Visit an exhibit before hours and catch one of Como’s zookeepers hard at work.
