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!
These highly interactive, nature play based programs foster deep and meaningful connections with animals and inspire children to explore the natural world. Through hands-on experiences, zoo exploration, investigation and play we will cultivate connections between children and the world around them.
Next in our series “Colors of Nature” designed for your 2-4 year old child (and one engaged adult).
Color surrounds us in the natural world and learning to recognize colors is a fundamental part of early childhood education. Join us as we discover the rainbow of color that is all around us. Children will improve their observational skills as we help them to identify the world of colors in their own surroundings, match colors they know to living things, and discover the magic of color with experiments and color mixing.
Meet a new animal during each “expedition” and discover how they fit into this colorful world.
