In-person (Atlanta) | 1 hour program | Second Sunday of every month

Critter Café is a delightfully casual family experience for our youngest critter enthusiasts, including ones too young for Critter Camp!

Each month, a brief presentation is followed by lots of supervised handling time with salamanders, frogs, turtles, lizards, and snakes. A different group is explored each month! Handling isn't required, as our goal is to provide a safe learning experience for children and their parents to explore these fascinating animals at their own pace. This program is available for children who are still too young to participate in our other programs like Critter Camp. This is not a drop-off program, rather an opportunity for parents and children to learn about these animals together.
