Production

Greenhouse Talk

View one of our growing areas to investigate the basic needs of plants. Our staff will discuss how different varieties of plants have adapted to grow in their natural habitats which can often affect their physical characteristics and growth habits. Hear a brief explanation about how a greenhouse structure provides an ideal habitat for plants that would otherwise be impacted throughout the changing seasons in Southwestern Ontario. 

Approx. 5-10 minutes

Succulent

Terrarium Class

In this activity, students will learn how to create the ideal habitat for hens and chicks, a winter hardy variety of succulent plant. Our staff will walk them through each step of creating layers inside of these open-air, glass terrariums. Students will learn about the function of each layer and how to care for their plants at home.

Approx. 30-45 minutes

Terrarium Class

During this self-guided activity, students can observe different types of animals and compare their physical characteristics. While locating the animals on their scavenger hunt list they can read fun facts on habitats along the way. Enjoy a visit with one of our zookeepers and an animal friend during a 10 minute meet & greet. This is their opportunity to see a small animal up close, ask our zookeeper questions, and take photos.

*Outdoor petting farm exhibits close from Nov. 1 to early Spring.
