Throughout the semester, the museum will welcome the public to participate in special museum activities that are both fun and educational for children of all ages.

The activities include:

Discovery Reading: Every Wednesday at 11 a.m. a professional storyteller will share stories about nature and animals. The sessions are free and all ages are welcome.

Nature Experienceships: On three separate Saturdays during the semester, children ages 12 and older are invited to spend two to three hours with experts learning about birds, trees and shrubs, and mammals. The cost is $10 per child.

Saturday Safaris: Beginning Saturday, Sept. 8, children ages 5 through 12 are invited to spend Saturday mornings from 9:30 a.m. to noon at the museum learning about animals from all over the world. The cost is $12 for the first child and $10 for each additional child in the same family.
