Community Outreach Programs

The Museum comes to you with interactive programs that incorporate live animals and natural objects to teach participants about the natural sciences. Presentations are flexible and can be adapted for a variety of ages and locations including but not limited to: early childhood centers, K-12 schools, scout groups, public libraries, after-school programs, civic groups, and large-scale community gatherings.

Topics highlight different portions of the science curriculum standards for grades K-12 including ecosystems, life cycles, body systems, Earth history, and classification of living organisms.

These programs can be tailored for special populations such as persons with mental or physical disabilities, senior centers, and pediatric patients and their families.

Note: Programs using live animals have limited availability on Saturdays and Sundays.

Maximum group size: 30; for more than 30 participants, you must schedule additional programs.
Fee: $120; $100 per additional program scheduled on the same day. (Pricing includes tax.)
Program length: 60 minutes
To register: Contact Martha Fisk, coordinator of community outreach, at 919.707.9883 at least 6 weeks prior to the requested program date.

Note: An adult representative of the host group must be present during programs.
