BranchOut: Nature Escape Room Event - Betrayal in the Biosphere 
Adult Night


Saturday, August 19
5:30–6:15 PM and 6:30–7:15 PM
At Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History

BranchOut designs activities that give participants an experience in nature that they will never forget. Modeled off the popular “escape room” movement, participants must work together to solve puzzles and challenges, exploring the great outdoors for clues in a race against the clock.

A multi-million dollar science experiment is in bad shape! Join a team of secret agents tasked with getting the experiment back on track and discover the culprit who’s been sabotaging the mission from the inside! Visit the Museum Backyard after hours and compete to see which team will make it out in the fastest time! BranchOut’s first-ever Adult Night is not to be missed! Light snacks provided.

$16 Members; $20 non-members

Space is limited. Pre-registration required. Must be 18+
