For the Birds

You know that all birds have feathers, beaks, and lay eggs. Now learn about their differences. This program will focus on the forms and functions of feathers, beaks, and eggs of different birds. Students will have the chance to meet one of our feathered friends up close.

Amazing Adaptations

Two of the most important things in an animal's life are to eat and to avoid being eaten. Discover the survival strategies of different animals. How they eat, how they avoid being eaten, and how they have adapted to their habitats. Includes live animal demonstration.

Animal Wrappers

With so many different animals in the world, how do we tell them apart, and how are they all related? Discover the characteristics of fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals. Children will be "tested" by classifying the live animal guests.
