Kids’ Nature Night: Zombie Apocalypse!

October 13 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Did you know that a zombie apocalypse of sorts is underway in the natural world? “Mind controlling” parasites are the culprit and a wide variety of plant and animal species become their unwilling victims every day! After cooking our dinner and s’mores over the campfire, we’ll spend the evening investigating the diverse ways parasites infiltrate their hosts and the methods some species have developed to fight back. We’ll also play a round or two of the super cool game, Humans vs. Zombies!

Open to children ages 5 to 10.

Please email our Education Coordinator, Sena, at gro.w1539986542olloh1539986542taerg1539986542@anes1539986542 for more information or to sign up.

Parents: this is an evening drop-off program and we will be outside about half of the time, so please dress your child(ren) accordingly. Dinner consists of hotdogs or veggie dogs with all the fixings, juice, and s’mores for dessert. Please feel free to send your child with an alternate dinner and/or dessert from home if you would prefer.

Non-members: $25/child. Members (individual level and up): $20/child.

Payment will be accepted by cash or check at the time of drop-off, but you must sign up in advance.
