Looking for something fun to do with your preschooler? Join the Buttonwood Buddies, a Nature Play Playgroup for children ages 2-5 where they can play outdoors, make new friends, create crazy crafts, enjoy a story time, and meet some of their favorite Buttonwood Park Zoo animals!  Each hour-long program will be led by one of BPZOO’s educators and will give 10 adult/child pairs a private opportunity to enjoy free play and structured activities.

Please be aware that registration is for each individual session, not for the entire multi-week series.

Members: $16/child
Non-members: $27/child (includes Zoo admission)

Buttonwood Buddies is an outdoor program, but masks ARE REQUIRED INDOORS for all guests over the age of 5, regardless of vaccination status. Strongly recommended for children ages 2 -5. This means masks are required upon entry into the zoo, to use the restrooms, and to enter any building. 

Children must be accompanied by an adult. Unregistered children (including siblings) can not attend.
