Sequoia Park Zoo - Nature Exchange

Sequoia Park Zoo invites guests of all ages to become stewards of the environment through the new Nature Exchange program. Bring in items found in nature, such as driftwood, rocks, empty shells, and redwood cones, and earn points to redeem on different nature items, like porcupine quills and antler sheds. In searching for things to collect and trade, Junior Naturalists will develop observation and deductive reasoning skills, thoughtfully consider the effects of their actions, and learn the ethics of responsible collecting.
