October 12: Going Batty

Come get cozy with the only mammal that can fly! Found on every continent except Antarctica and in a variety of ecosystems, bats are as fascinating as they are numerous. Come learn about these wonderful creatures and how they benefit our environment.

November 9: Tons of Seeds

Even the largest oak tree begins its life as a tiny seed. For this Saturday Science we’ll be learning all about seeds, what they need, and the tricks plants use to keep them safe and spread them far and wide.

December 14: Nocturnal Life

When the sun sets many of us get ready for rest, but there is a whole world that is just waking up! Get ready for some night life (during the day) and learn about why and how some animals are active while we’re all asleep.
