Creatures of the Shadows

July 24 @ 9:00 am2:00 pm
| Cost: $132 | Cost for Members: $112

Owls silently hunt and bats zig-zag in the night sky, flying squirrels glide and coyotes howl. Dissect owl pellets, examine “night” insects up close, and stare into a spider’s “eyeshine.” We’ll also learn where some nocturnal animals hide during the day and how fireflies flash and bats find their prey. Listen to some funny and weird night animal calls, learn to identify animal tracks, and make your own mini backyard nocturnal animal field guide. Meet the science museum’s own critters, and visit the Seuss, science, and art museums, as well as the children’s special glass exhibit. Dress for mess.
