A fun museum where the kids can interact and play while learning about animals and their habitats. They have handlers on duty who can even guide you through what you're seeing, and let you have a real "hands on" experience! A lot of fun for the whole family!
This is one of the oldest environmental education centers in the country, founded by a group of teenagers in 1959 who wanted to display their small collection of plants, animals, and rocks. Natural-history dioramas of regional habitats prepare families for exploring the nature trails on the seventy-acre grounds. Special activities are scheduled throughout the year, from storytelling and dance programs to birdhouse building and raptor watching. The Ogden Gallery at the Boulevard features nature-inspired artwork and other exhibits. There is also a Nature Shop. The museum also operates the education center at Kenridge Farm, a wildlife sanctuary that offers programs celebrating the cultural, historical, and natural divesity of the area. Check with the museum for current programs, including the Young Naturalists series. There are single- and multiday programs geared for young children as well as parent/child events; call for prices. Kenridge Farm also has several miles of trails to explore.
