Throughout the year, the Museum offers an exciting variety of adult programs designed to encourage understanding and appreciation of the many facets of our natural world. Lectures and films, classes, field trips, panel discussions, and workshops provide opportunities to experience new ideas, develop new skills, meet active adults with similar interests, and learn from experts.
The Museum also offers a wonderful roster of family programs that create opportunities for parents and children of all ages to have fun learning together.
