2020 Spring Wild Adventure Programs

In partnership with Southwick's Zoo, we are offering three single-day educational programs, each for kids in grades 2-6, during 2020 April vacation! Children will learn through hands-on activities including games, crafts, and even meeting a few of the EARTH Discovery Center's animal ambassadors up close and personal!

Tuesday, April 21: From T-Rex to Turkeys

9:00am-3:00pm - Grades 2-6

$80 nonmember / $70 EARTH member

This program focuses on how modern animals evolved from their prehistoric ancestors. By examining evolution, we can discover some surprising connections! Did you know that the T-Rex is connected to turkeys and chickens? Students will explore the connections between different species of animals and what makes them alike and unique.

Wednesday, April 22: It's What’s On The Inside That Counts

9:00am-3:00pm - Grades 2-6

$80 nonmember / $70 EARTH member

Looking at how animals behave and function is fascinating! In this program, we will explore animal behaviors, eating habits, body structure, and adaptations to discover what makes different species thrive in specific environments.

Thursday, April 23: Move it! Move it!

9:00am-3:00pm - Grades 2-6

$80 nonmember / $70 EARTH member

Locomotion is the name of the game here. Not trains, but how animals move on land, in water, and in the air, as well as the unique adaptations that allow them to survive in their habitats. Different species will be examined to figure out what makes them suited to their environment.

We also offer longer multi-day programs during the summer ranging from half-day programs for younger adventurers to an excursion program for teens interested in learning about careers relating to zoology.
