Natural History Highlights at the Nature Center

Nature Center | Each weekday during the Summer at 1 pm
Free for members; Included with non-member admission

Join our naturalists each weekday at 11 am to discover and learn about local flora and fauna, evolution, and the physical processes that define the natural world. Each day's program will fall under a set theme, but the content presented will vary.


Mondays: Plants

Discover the green and growing things that fill the forests and fields, and learn about the important roles they play in the ecosystem and human society.

Tuesdays: Wildlife

From tiny insects to big bears, we will investigate the wild animals that call our region home.

Wednesdays: Bones and Bodies

Discover the common structures inside all vertebrates (animals with skeletons), and learn how we can see evidence for evolution in every living thing.

Thursdays: Earth and the Environment

From rocks and soils to weather and climate, take a closer look at the Earth we live on and how Earth processes affect the life we see around us every day.

Fridays: Birds

Feel feathers and take wing as you learn where birds came from, what makes them different, and how they live.
