Did you know that the Lehigh Valley Zoo has its very own Nature Play area called “Preston’s Pad”? Nature play encourages environmental exploration through digging holes, hands-on play, and exploring natural water sources.
Bring your kids to Preston’s Pad on Saturday, April 13 and Sunday, April 14 to join in on our various Nature Play activities including: Rock painting, making Toad Abodes, and exchanging items found in nature at our Swap Shop! Nature Play has been shown to benefit physical health and augment cognitive, social, and emotional development by providing an opportunity to develop creativity and resourcefulness. Experiences with nature as a child can often lead to environmental stewardship, later in life.
Don’t forget to say “hello” to famous fairy, Tinkerbell (courtesy of Joanna Bertalan of Professional Singing Princess) Tinkerbell will be visiting the zoo this weekend on both Saturday and Sunday from 10AM – 12PM for a Meet & Greet and photos with the guests!
