We are heading into our last two weeks of a very successful summer of children's workshops! Our Wednesday and Friday workshops have been filling up with young explorers who have collected fish and insects, dissected owl pellets, excavated fossils, petted a live snake, created pictographs with earth pigments and much, much more. There are a few spots left if you'd like to join the fun!
