Saturday Kids’ Activity
Who is awake and moving about under the light of the moon? Night creatures! Hear stories and explore the science behind some of our favorite nocturnal animals.
Bats can hunt by echolocation, owls float silently thanks to specially fringed feathers, and raccoons use their sensitive paws to feel for prey. You will be able to examine specimens and play games to celebrate night and night creatures.
