Additional Information

It is in a child’s nature to want to explore…

Denver Zoo continues to offer our new programming for young children:  Early Explorer Expeditions!

This four part series “Sensational Senses” is designed for your 2-4 year old child (and one engaged adult) to discover and explore the natural world though their senses.  Through hands-on experiences, zoo exploration, investigation and play we will cultivate connections between children and the world around them. Each “expedition” will include different live animals from our education collection. 


You must purchase a ticket for each child and each adult.
