STONEHAM -- What better way to celebrate Spring than at the zoo? Preschoolers (3-4 years old) can join the Stone Zoo's Curious Cubs program on Friday, April 4 and April 18, from 10:15 to 11 a.m. These explorations into the animal kingdom are a great way for kids to get hands-on with early science concepts and discover the wonders of the natural world.

The cost is $8 members, $10 non-members. For families with more than one child, additional participating children are $4 each.
