11AM - Eagles, Hawks, and Owls – Soaring, Swooping, and Stealthy Predators
Raptors rule the sky and are a special group of birds that include eagles, falcons, hawks and owls. Examine feathers, feet, bones and other artifacts that highlight special characteristics of these raptors and predators. Find out how they hunt and how they live. Great hands-on items, bird facts, and a craft will teach all ages about these flying hunters! Afterwards, delve into the museum and head outside to explore! Grab a trail map, try out an exploration kit, or go on a scavenger hunt!

Infuse your child’s spring break with a healthy dose of wonder! Stop by The Nature Museum between Tuesday, April 17th and Saturday, April 21st to take advantage of our expanded hours.

Our museum’s is open every Thursday and Friday from 10am-4pm, but during this vacation week we will be open Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturday as well during those same hours. Each day at 11am our environmental educators will lead a special all ages program. You might catch “Eagles, Hawks, a–Predators of the Sky" or “The Recipes for Thunderstorms" or another fun, hands-on program. 

During your exploration of the museum, crawl through an underground bear den; dig for fossils; find out about bats, bees, and catamounts; and learn about animal adaptations by dressing up as your favorite creature. Discover our curated collection of hands-on exhibits. Afterwards, head outside and take a walk in the woods behind the museum or on one of three Village Park trails. There are plenty of opportunities to connect with nature and learn something new.

This program is free and admission to the museum is by your donation.

The week will culminate in a special Earth Day Party at 11am on Saturday. Come and celebrate with us!
