This half-day program focuses on how modern animals evolved from their prehistoric ancestors. By examining evolution, we can discover some surprising connections! Did you know that the T-Rex is connected to turkeys and chickens? Students will explore the connections between different species of animals and what makes them alike and unique.

Program highlights: Learning about the zoo’s 150+ different species, train ride through North American exhibit and wetlands, meeting animal ambassadors in the EARTH Discovery Center, tie-dying a t-shirt to bring home, arts and crafts, and more!
