The National Aviary is launching a new program to introduce little ones to the world of veterinary care. Geared for children ages 2-6, Junior Veterinarians will give kids the opportunity to learn about the many things vets do each day to keep animals healthy and well. Participating children will practice their animal doctor skills using toy stethoscopes, bandages and other toy medical equipment on plush birds that the Aviary provides, or children can choose to bring a plush animal from home for a medical exam. Junior Veterinarians is led by Aviary veterinary staff, and during the program one of the Aviary's own patients will be brought out for participants to meet.
Junior Veterinarians is included in the price of admission, and takes place every Wednesday at 10:30 am. General admission: $10 adults; $9 seniors; $8.50 children 12 and under; under 2 years of age admitted free.
