Animal Tracks Demonstration (Demo at 5:40 p.m. and 6:15 p.m.)
Animal tracks are fascinating to kids, and can be used to enhance science, math, writing, and art education at a number of grade levels. Join a live demo to learn some basics about animal tracks and track molds, ways to use them in your classroom, and resources from MNHC.

Sound Study Demonstration (Demo at 6:00 p.m.)
Did you know that fish can sing, or that elephants can hear with their feet? Sound is important for animal communication. Animals use a variety of body parts to make sound in order to communicate in their everyday lives.We’ll explore the properties of sound in a variety of ways, including visualizing sound waves and learning about how animals use sound to communicate.

Refreshments and After-School Snacks Too!

We will have wine, beer, and snacks available since we know how hard you work every day! Thanks to Grizzly Liquor of Missoula for donating the evening’s wine!
