September 2: Bills and Beaks Tell What They Eat
Put on your wildlife biologist cap, and hone your observational skills, as we follow the clues we find in various birds’ beaks to learn about their lifestyles and behavior. Why do hummingbirds have long, skinny beaks, while the Red Crossbill has a unique, asymmetrical beak? Plus, make a bird craft to take home!
September 9: Endangered Animals Tour
In this guided tour, we will highlight some of the endangered, threatened and an extinct species found in the museum’s collection. We also, happily, get to talk about some species that have made remarkable recoveries thanks to recent conservation efforts!
September 16: NISE Earth and Space Activities
Explore Earth and Space activity kits and materials developed and donated to many museums, including the L.C. Bates, by NISE. Try making clouds, learn about craters, moon quakes, light pollution and more. And, Send up a stomp rocket.
