Parents and guardians play an integral role in facilitating and fostering their children’s appreciation of the natural world. To determine ways that the Museum can support families as they engage in scientific exploration, the Museum seeks to establish a Parent Forum. The Forum will offer parents and guardians from Wake and surrounding counties an opportunity to provide input and feedback on Museum services and programming.
