Junior Inspector Program


Can you crack the 5-2-1-0 code?

Begin your Junior Inspector journey at the Montgomery County Health Department’s Healthy Headquarters, located next to the giraffe and zebra exhibit. 

At the Healthy Headquarters, children and families can explore 5-2-1-0 related activities and pick up a Junior Inspector’s Logbook which will lead them on a mission to find hidden stations throughout the zoo. 

Each station illustrates how the animals practice the 5-2-1-0 message while providing family-friendly strategies and activities to complete in their logbook.

Once each station has been visited, families will report to the Nature Shop to have their logbook reviewed. Upon completion, children will become ‘official’ Junior Inspectors of the Montgomery County Health Department and Elmwood Park Zoo by receiving their very own Junior Inspector badge!

The Junior Inspector Program is free and open during regular zoo business hours.

To learn more about the 5-2-1-0 message, please visit or contact Guest Services at 610.277.3825 x 222.
