Spring Break is a great time connect with nature. Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary is offering Spring Break Family Mini-Camps to help families this need. Designed for kids (ages 5+) and adults to attend together, each mini-camp explores a different topic and includes indoor activities and time outside exploring our 289 acre sanctuary.
On March 11, in “Unearthing Dinosaurs,” explore which dinosaurs and other pre-historic life lived in Texas. Go on a real fossil hunt and make a pre-historic inspired craft to take home.
“What Comes from Eggs?” on March 12, will provide participants with the opportunity to discover some of the amazing animals that hatch from eggs. See examples from the Heard’s live and preserved animals. You’ll also get to dye your own hard-boiled egg using natural dyes to take home.
Springtime can bring dramatic weather to our area. On March 13, in “Forces of Nature,” find out about tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, and volcanoes. Then, make your own weather-themed project.
Children must be accompanied by an adult 18 years or older. Each adult may bring up to 4 children. Preregistration for these mini-camps is required. These camps are $20 per person (adult or child); or, become a Heard Museum member and pay only $17 per person (adult or child). More information at www.heardmuseum.org.
