Join us in April for Wild About Our World, a month long celebration of our planet. Play Eco-Bingo, spin the Environmental Trivia Wheel and participate in other Earth-themed crafts and activities. Watch one of our special presentations every Sunday (except Easter) and learn how to respect and preserve nature.
April 1 – Rocky Mountain Reptile Rescue 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. *
Do you have a fear of snakes? Learn why these animals should be respected while observing various snakes, lizards and other reptile species. Support this local organization that takes in reptiles and finds them good homes. You’ll even have the opportunity to touch one!
April 15 – HawkQuest 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. *
Raptors are fascinating members of the bird world that we typically only see from a distance. Here’s your chance to get an up-close look at an eagle, falcon, hawk and owl while learning about them from knowledgeable staff and volunteers. The birds will be stationed around the atrium, providing a more personal experience for all.
April 21 – Earth Day with Radio Disney 10a.m. – 5p.m.
We’re celebrating early with the Radio Disney Road Crew! Come on out the Saturday before Earth Day and enjoy live music, environmental learning, animal encounters, rainforest adventures, scavenger hunts and more. We’ll be spending all day learning more about our environment, competing in recycling races and meeting some of our environmentally friendly neighbors.
April 22 – Helen Trencher, the Percussion Lady presents Paws and Claws 11 a.m. & 1 p.m.
Get ready to hear the sounds of nature as we welcome back the Percussion Lady for another fun and interactive program. Let’s honor and celebrate Earth’s critters that creep, prowl, roar and soar—through stories, rhythms and songs. Everyone is invited to be a part of the band and all instruments are provided.
April 29 – Linda Batlin – Storyteller 11 a.m. & 1 p.m.
Join storyteller Linda Batlin as she shares stories about understanding and appreciating nature and exploring the wonder of the world around us. Learn of a polar bear who is fighting against global warming and find out why there is a face in the moon. A fun program for the whole family.
