While visiting Kronkosky's Tiny Tot Nature Spot, children will be encouraged to get out of their strollers (and in many cases their shoes and socks) for a hands-on encounter with real, wild, life! Specially designed areas and well-trained staff, called Playleaders, will help children and their families immerse themselves in nature. To enhance your trip for children five and under, check the schedule posted near the Nature Spot entrance for daily animal presentations and activities. During each and every visit, children will be immersed in nature experiences that engage the senses, encourage discovery and bring them close to nature.
