Be a ‘modern’ wildlife biologist for one day! Learn real techniques used to study wildlife ecology from researchers in the field.  Venture outside and look for tracks and other clues that animals leave behind. Use state-of-the-art technologies to observe wildlife from the animal's point of view and make a map of animal movements. Discover the unusual and funny behaviors of woodland critters that you would not see in documentaries!  All activities are designed to be a fun and interactive experience for families with children aged 8-13 to learn together.

Fees:  $10 members/$20 nonmembers, per person includes admission to the museum.  Participants are encouraged to come early or stay late and explore the museum before or after class. These programs are not appropriate for children under 8 years of age.
