Little Explorers are invited to slither on over to the park and discover the truth about snakes, these often-misunderstood animals. Through songs and games, little ones will have fun learning where snakes live, what they eat and how they grow. We will even get to see up close and touch some live captive snakes.
This program is for children ages 2-6 only. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
