From September through May the Museum hosts a monthly Family Day celebrating a new exhibition or a fascinating natural science. Hosted by our education department’s staff and instructors, we’ll conduct experiments, make a craft to take home, and provide a variety of extra activities for a fun and educational family experience. You might even have a chance to meet one of our scientists!
What flies, lay eggs, sings, hunts for prey, and dates back to the age of dinosaurs? The bird of course! With nearly 500 of our feathered friends native to San Diego County, our region has more species than any other in the United States! Take part in activities and crafts featuring these incredible animals. Meet a special ambassador from Project Wildlife as we take flight and celebrate our feathered friends!
Start the morning with our volunteer naturalists, the Canyoneers and go on a clean-up hike in Florida Canyon. We’ll meet at the Moreton Bay Fig Tree at the Museum’s north entrance at 10 AM. Gloves, pickers, and bags will be provided.
This Family Day is generously sponsored by Heller Foundation of San Diego.
Become a junior botanist and learn the science of plants, sow seeds, and make nature-inspired crafts. Meet scientists from the Museum’s Botany Department as we go green for the day.
