Inspire a Passion for Science and Nature
Learning and discovery are around every corner of the EcoTarium’s 55-acre grounds and three-floor museum. Whether you are a teacher, scout leader, or other youth group field trip coordinator, we look forward to helping you select the right program for your group’s next visit.
Groups that visit the EcoTarium enjoy our exhibits, wildlife, and grounds, and have the option to book our Education Programs. From animals and astronomy to electricity, rockets, and beyond, our Education Programs are designed to combine fun and learning for your group.
If you are unable to bring your group to the EcoTarium, let the EcoTarium come to you! Our Traveling Education Programs offer convenient, affordable, and unique science and nature learning experiences at your location. You provide the space and the EcoTarium provides a Museum Educator and all materials needed for hands-on exploration. (Look for the “It Travels” icon next to available programs.) Our Traveling Education Programs are available September 1, 2017 - June 20, 2018.
For a unique and fun-filled educational experience, your group may be interested in our Night Journeys: Overnight Adventures program, where youth groups spend a night in our museum. Night Journey programs include a digital planetarium program, live animal encounter and other hands-on activities that enhance your group’s learning, with six different science and nature themes to choose from. And, many programs allow scouts to work towards badges. Another special add-on experience, Wild Toys Animal Adventure, offers smaller groups a more personalized program to learn about the natural behaviors of wildlife.
