Young Explorers – Fall Series – Creatures of the Night

Sunday, August 11, 2019
9:00 am — 11:00 am

New for 2019!

This new, interactive Young Explorers program will focus on one unifying topic for each series. During the Fall series, your child will discover how animals sleep.  Some animals are just like us and sleep at night, others only are active at night and some sleep all winter. Through up-close animal encounters, behind the scenes adventures and hands-on activities your child will see first-hand which sleeping schedules the animals in the wild use to survive.
