Make your child’s spring break a wild adventure!

In partnership with Southwick’s Zoo, we are offering three single-day educational programs for kids in grades 2-6 during April vacation! Children will learn through hands-on activities including games, crafts, and even meeting a few of the EARTH Discovery Center’s animal ambassadors up close and personal!

Did you know we also offer longer Wild Adventure Programs during the summer? Click here to learn more about Summer Wild Adventure Programs.


I'm an EARTH Member, how do I get my discount?

EARTH members receive a $10 discount on Spring Wild Adventure Programs. To receive your member discount when you register, click the green “register button” on the eventbrite page, then “enter promotional code”. Your code is the first 5 letters of your last name + the first 2 letters of your first name. Example: John Smith’s code would be SMITHJO. If your last name is fewer than 5 letters, just use your full last name + the first 2 letters of your first name, Jane Doe’s code would be DOEJA.
*Must be a current EARTH member at the time of registration to receive the member discount. Discounts cannot be applied retroactively.

Where and when do I drop my child off?

Please drop your child off at 8:45am at the picnic table located near the top of the zoo’s small parking lot (near the main gate).

Where do I pick up my child?

Children will be picked up at 3:00pm at the same location as drop-off/check-in.

What should my child wear?

Make sure your child is dressed for the weather. We spend most of the day outdoors and do a large amount of walking, so we recommend that children wear comfortable shoes and do not wear sandals or open toed shoes.

Depending on the day’s weather, you may want to pack additional clothing such as a sweatshirt, additional pair of socks, etc.

What should my child bring?

Children should bring a backpack with: lunch,  a water bottle, hand sanitizer,sunscreen, and insect repellent.

Children must also bring a face mask or other fabric face covering such as a bandana. Following state guidelines, children will be required to wear a face mask throughout the day, excluding during meal times. We strongly recommend packing an extra mask in case one gets dirty or is unusable.
