I'm always baffled when kids say this. How can you possibly be bored with all of the things going on in your own backyard? (You might need to use a magnifying glass to see it, but big things are happening out there!) How about learning more about the critters, plants, rocks, (and even the dirt) so you can explore more for yourself? If you need some ideas, check out the Lindsay Wildlife Museum summer-fall program guide.
Do you have an inquisitive preschooler running about? While Mini-Mondays are on hiatus until fall, we have several programs, ranging from 2-week sessions to 1-day classes. The little ones can learn about wiggly worms, singing birds, swimming fish, and even get a chance to get those little hands dirty digging around in soils and rocks.
For school-age kids, in addition to our annual summer science camp - Wild Times- we're offering a wide range of classes - kitchen science, photography, solar energy, and, of course, animals!
Summer fun at the museum isn’t just for the younger ones! Bigger kids can be teacher's helpers and camp counselors, which is a great way to get some experience while learning more about nature and doing some good.
Also, summer hours will begin the week of June 10. Starting June 13, museum hours are extended to 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m on Wednesday through Friday. On Tuesdays, starting June 11, the museum will be open for members only from noon until 5:00 p.m. Admission is $7 adults; $6 seniors and students; $5 for children 2-17; free to members and children under 2.
So, this summer, come learn something new that you can take with you into the wild!
