Pollinators, 1 PM on Friday, June 11th: Who are our pollinator friends? What makes a good habitat for them?

Activities include a game, and an opportunity to interact with biologist and insect specialist Dr. Mat Brust from Chadron State College so bring your questions and your insect friends too. Participants will receive a GLOBE mosquito mapper kit that includes a guide, stickers, and an active eye Universal Mobile Phone Microscope (while supplies last). 

The Genius of Birds 1 PM on Friday, June 25th: It turns out that bird brains are pretty smart. Learn about our feathered friends, play a game and make a bird feeder to take home! Check out our display of birding guides and nature books too.
