      Second Saturday Science

      Second Saturday Science With Aemelia Thompson Second Saturdays, October through December Members: Free; Non-members: $10 per family 10am - 11am Saturdays October 12, November 9, December 14 Join us for seasonal nature and science programs each second Saturday of the month. Designed for children with their parents, these programs will explore cool topics in nature. No registration required. Groups of 6 or more please call ahead. September 14: Pollination Celebration Day Instead of a typical Second Saturday Science, we are kicking off the fall with our second annual Pollination Celebration Day!  October 12 - Going Batty Come get cozy with the only mammal that can fly! Found on every continent except Antarctica and in a variety of ecosystems, bats are as fascinating as they are numerous. Come learn about these wonderful creatures and how they benefit our environment. November 9 - Tons of Seeds Even the largest oak tree begins its life as a tiny seed.  For this Saturday Science we’ll be learning all about seeds, what they need, and the tricks plants use to keep them safe and spread them far and wide. December 14 - Nocturnal Life When the sun sets many of us get ready for rest, but there is a whole world that is just waking up! Get ready for some night life (during the day) and learn about why and how some animals are active while we’re all asleep. Weather Cancellation PolicyIf we cancel this program due to inclement weather, we will post the cancellation on our website by 9am. Please check the website before coming to the program. This program is free to the community thanks to the support of our sponsors:
