Hidden Diversity: Amphibian Adaptations


Saturday, April 21, 2018, 1:30pm to 3:30pm


Harvard Museum of Natural History, 26 Oxford Street

Presented in collaboration with Mara Laslo, Ph.D candidate in the Hanken Lab at the Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard University.

Explore the wonderful and wacky world of amphibians! Learn about amphibians that dig, crawl, swim, and glide; amphibians as big as dogs or smaller than a dime; and amphibians that go through metamorphosis once, twice, or not at all. See live amphibians, learn from museum specimens, and design your own experiment to understand how researchers are still discovering new amphibian knowledge. All activities are designed to be fun and interactive experiences 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. 

Advanced registration required.

Families must register at least one adult and one child for this program.
