Nature and Science at Wonder Works: Animals in Spring
March 15, 10:00 am - 12:00 pm$8
Find out how spring begins for wild animals. Early birds are flying north in March, some early frogs may sing, and the first spring butterflies fly if it’s warm enough. We’ll meet some animals that wake up as soil warms, including living and preserved insects. Search for plastic and plush bugs, birds, mammals, and reptiles that spent the winter in the Great Outdoors exhibit, then make footprints in our pretend mud at the play dough table.
*Please note that if you do not choose West or Southwest for the region selection, your event will not appear in the calendar. All events will be reviewed before publishing to the calendar. Event approval usually occurs on Wednesdays; if you need your event to be reviewed before then, please email Annie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
