Upcoming Talk 

A Guided Tour of Art in the Park with Jo Zider

Wednesday, April 2 at 7 pm

Art in the Park Curator, Jo Zider, will take us on an evening tour of this year's Art in the Park installation pieces. She'll give us a handle on what the artists are thinking, and why they've created these original pieces for our park. This hike is always thought provoking, and gives us some perspective about the intersection of nature, public space, and art. This is a free event. Light refreshments will be served.

During the summer months (June, July, and August) our For the Inquisitive Naturalist talks are special family-friendly Nature Nights at the Center.  Nature Night activities start at 6:30pm and include live animals, crafts, nature walks, discovery room visits and themed snacks!
