Beaver Chat and Craft | 1:15PM - 2PM
Location: Beaver Habitat
Learn exactly how beavers are built to build in this exciting and interactive chat and craft. That’s right, we’re going to build a beaver puppet as you learn how their body is adapted to build structures and live in the water.

Beaver Enrichment | 2:30PM - 3PM

Create enrichment items for our beavers! We’ll provide the cardboard, newspaper and instructions. You help us make fun items for our beaver boys that encourage their natural behaviors such as chewing, tearing, and digging.
