Wildlife Workshops

AGES: 8-11 YEARS

Get ready for some hands-on, brains-on fun!  Kids will explore wildlife and nature topics through a variety of engaging activities, including STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) explorations, model-making, behind-the-scenes excursions, and encounters with several live animals each session.  With this much excitement, don’t be surprised if your child is too busy having fun and making friends to notice how much they’ve learned! This program is for ages 8 - 11 years old (sorry, no exceptions).
