Open Play Themes:
Do you miss the swimming pool?? Well here at Eco Adventures, some of our animals get their own private pools--year-round!! Come meet some of nature's slimiest and most slippery creatures, from crabs to salamanders, gators, frogs and more! Then make a SPLASH of your own with a water-inspired craft!
Imagine you're living in the desert--it's sunny, dry, and HOT!! It's no easy job to survive in the desert, but some of our animal know how to do just that. Meet creatures that have come up with crazy ideas to escape that hot sun, from digging burrows to finding the tiniest bits of shade and even going without WATER. Then we'll head over to our Underwater Discovery Room (what a relief!) and make a desert survival craft to take home.
You wouldn't believe some of the things Mother Nature has thought up... but you'll see them up close and personal when you meet some of her greatest misfits! From snakes that look like pigs, to "scorpions" that shoot vinegar out of their tails, and much more, come learn why sometimes the strangest animals aren't so strange at all. In fact, they probably think we're the weird ones!!
Eco Adventures is home to a lot of baby animals, and they all need special care. Can you help us show some love to Eco's youngest animal ambassadors?? Cuddle an armadillo, pet a hedgehog, hug a snake, or feed a kinkajou--who knows what could happen when our baby animals come out to play??
Ahoy, matey!! Do you have what it takes to be a PIRATE?? Brush up on your sailing skills and say hello to some of our favorite swash-buckling critters. Pirates must be ready to face any challenge--are YOU brave enough to wrangle a sea serpent, talk to a parrot, wrestle a fierce dragon, and more? You better hope so--or else you'll have to walk the plank! Come in your best garb and get ready to have a blast--ARRRR!!
Some animals are so cool they just seem MAGICAL--well at least they do in our favorite fairy tales!! Eco Adventures is super excited introduce you to some of your favorite animal sidekicks, from Rapunzel's helper, to Captain Hook's greatest fear, and even some of Harry Potter's animal friends! Don't miss out on the chance to say hi to some of your all-time favorite characters!!
NEW Escape Room: Escape Alive?!
"We loved the new and improved morning program with you all today! We attended the 10:30-12 locomotion/open play and loved the new structured approach paired with a short bit of open play. It was great for my son and his friend, both 3.5. We hope to attend more on Wednesday mornings as neither is in school that day. Thanks again for a unique and different way to play! " -Jessi C.
