Critter Club

Animal Fun

Fun stories. Great crafts. Hands-on animal learning and a special animal surprise…

It’s Critter Club, the favorite hang-out for 3-5-year-olds who love animals (is there any other kind?)

Bring your grown-up (they have to stay) and join us on scheduled Thursdays or Fridays to have fun together.
