When school's out, the EcoTarium is the place to be. Each February, April and December, our education team cooks up creative ways to learn and have fun -- all designed especially for school-age kids and their families. These theme-based weeks are filled with activities focused around a particular science or nature topic. Many activities are free with admission.
Holiday Vacation - Animal Superheroes
Tuesday, December 26 - Sunday, December 31, 2017
Spiderman is agile and Hawkgirl is strong, but real-life animals are also performing amazing feats of stealth, power, and adaptability. Experience first-hand the heroic traits of creatures you thought you knew, and some you've never heard of. You don't need a cape to be a hero (but feel free to wear one).
Details coming soon!
