Animals in August

Check out The Call of the Wild, an article about the importance of giving kids experiences with live animals, written by Mary Hackman, the Museum's early childhood program developer.

And if you want to have close encounters with some incredible creatures - and learn fascinating facts about them from the animal experts - visit the Museum on the next few Tuesdays:

August 11 • Pony Parade! • 1:00 - 3:00 PM
Children pet ponies from Ross Farm and learn how to groom, saddle, mount and ride them in the Museum’s
Children’s Garden.

August 18 • Awesome Animals • 1:00 & 2:00 PM
Kids get close to a chinchilla, a tree frog, lots of lizards, and snakes of all sizes with Dave Marchetti of Animal Experiences.
