Enjoy a Night Out!

Need to catch up on some errands, go shopping, or have a date night? Been meaning to check out the Museum’s Thursday night hours, but haven’t had a chance? Give yourselves a night out and the kids a chance to learn about cool topics, play games, and make recycled crafts at the Museum with our Nature Explorers' Drop-off Program. 

Programs will provide your children with opportunities to explore the Museum, learn about different subjects, create nature-centered art using natural and recycled materials, and enjoy stories and games with other children their age. Classes are divided in to two age groups, so that the educational activities will be engaging for children ages 3–11.

Insect Invasion!

Red Stink BugMay the BugFest activities continue!  Learn all about the six-legged creatures that rule the planet this month at the Nature Explorers’ Drop-off Program.  Nature Explorers will learn about a variety of different insects, play games, explore the Museum, and practice their insect observation skills.  They will also make take-home bug boxes to get a closer look at the insects in their backyards!

Programs include:

  • Three hours of fun and educational activities in a safe environment with upbeat and enthusiastic environmental educators.
  • A chance to play games and explore the Museum with other children.
  • A nature-centered craft to take home and share with the family.
  • A healthy, nut-free snack.
  • A memorable and educational experience!
