Pre-K & Kindergarten

In My Backyard

The zoo is a great place to see exotic animals, but children can see animals every day right in their own backyards. This program introduces children to New Jersey's wildlife and teaches them how to enjoy and learn more about these animals appropriately and safely. Includes live animal demonstration.
