The Hi-Desert Nature Museum is kicking off a brand new education program this September! Join us for Kid EdVentures, an hour long program that gets kids immersed in different fields through hands-on activities just like the professionals. In coordination with the ending of our Hatching the Past exhibit, this month kids will be EdVenturing into the field of paleontology to learn more about dino eggs and development by participating in a dig and using their new skills to determine what fossils they have found. This interactive program will take place on September 20 from 10:30am-11:30am and is free!
