Scheduled Education

Elves for Animals
Friday, December 16, 2016
Time: 10am-1pm
Age Group: 6-10yrs

Celebrate the magic of the holidays at your Central Coast’s ONLY Zoo!  Every year Santa visits the Charles Paddock Zoo a little early to deliver gifts to your Zoo friends.  And this year we are adding a new and exciting tradition to Holiday Magic.  Since Santa’s Nice List is so long this year, the kids can be elves for the day and help make special gifts for the animals!  There are lots of things to do before the gifts can be given out and it’s sure to be a good time with lots of good cheer.  So, get enrolled and meet your Zoo Educator at the Discovery room.  All participants get a FREE admission coupon for the day of Holiday Magic (which is held the following day), so they can come back and watch the animals enjoy all their hard work!!

Pricing: $25/child (non-Zoo Member)
$23/child (current Zoo Member)
