    Location: Earthplace

    Join our naturalists on Saturdays at 1pm for a fun nature class. With a different class every Saturday of the month, there's always more to learn. No pre-registration required.

    Spend some time up close and personal with some of the Earthplace Animal Ambassadors! Our expert naturalists will share facts and information about some of our long-term residents and you'll get the chance to see them outside of their enclosure. Classes are designed for K-5.


  • Turkey Walk and Trot with Jo DeBone

    November 24th, 2018, 2:30pm — 4:00pm

    Bundle up and bring a camera as we go in search of turkeys along the trails with our annual Turkey Walk and Trot. Local expert Jo Debone will present a brief history of turkeys prior to the walk - including discussion of their diet, life span and characteristics.  To further familiarize ourselves with this great animal, we’ll take a look at some turkey feathers, tails, feet, and a beak and listen to a wild turkey call.
