Stories and Stuffies
Bring your favorite stuffed animal, book, and blanket for story time at Sequoia Park Zoo! Parents and young children are invited to join education staff in Secrets of the Forest on the first Wednesday of every month from 11:00am – noon for curated stories and quiet activities. Activity is included with paid admission.
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 the first Saturday of every month. Call Kate in the Education Department at (707) 441-4217 for more information.
