Select Thursdays, 10:15-11:15 a.m.
Children ages 7-12 can join a Zoo interpreter in the Tree House to explore various nature topics in the form of a mystery game. To solve the Tree House Mystery our Junior Detectives must use science and reason to find out Who Dun It? These programs may also include stories, puppet shows, animal ambassador presentations, keeper chats and/or animal biofacts. FREE with admission!
