Thursdays in October and November (8 weeks) – Animal Adaptations at Franklin Park Zoo (Class dates are October 3 – November 21.)

Every animal in the world has special body parts, skills and talents called adaptations that help them survive and thrive. In this eight week program we’ll explore the wide variety of animal adaptations from feathers to fur and hunting to hiding.

Program dates are: Thursdays, October 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th, 31st and November 7th, 14th, and 21st.

Thursdays in February*, March and April (10 weeks) – Habitats and Ecosystems at Franklin Park Zoo (*There will be no class on February 20.  Class dates are February 6 – April 17.)

Just like every person’s home looks different, animal homes and habitats look different too. The Arctic is different from the tropics and the forest is different than a grassland. However, just like everyone can get everything they need from their home, every animal’s habitat has everything they need in order to survive. In this ten week series, we’ll travel the world of habitats and ecosystems at Franklin Park Zoo and beyond. 

Program dates are:  Thursdays, February 6th, 13th, 27th, and March 6th, 13th, 20th, 27th, and April 3rd, 10th and 17th.  There is NO class on February 20th.
