Stories and Stuffies

Activity is included with paid admission. Stories and Stuffies goes on summer vacation for the months of July and August.


Nature Exchange

Sequoia Park Zoo invites guests of all ages to become stewards of the environment through the new Nature Exchange program! Bring in items found in nature, such as driftwood, rocks, empty shells, and redwood cones, and earn points to redeem on different nature items, like porcupine quills and antler sheds. In searching for things to collect and trade, Junior Naturalists will develop observation and deductive reasoning skills, thoughtfully consider the effects of their actions, and learn the ethics of responsible collecting. Nature Exchange is open from 11:00am – 1:00pm on the first Saturday of every month between September and June; it goes on vacation for July and August. Call Kate in the Education Department at (707) 441-4217 for more information.


Cub Club (Ages 5-7)  Cub Club is a wild adventure for the young explorer. During each class we learn about animals through intimate encounters, hands-on exploration, theater, storybooks, art and more.
