#var:page_name# cover

Come explore how the food an animal eats affects its body and behavior – including yours! There will be lots of skulls – bear, cougar, horse, alligator, gar, camel, beaver and many more! Also Lady Bug explorations, a salmon run game, critter boxes and mini-terrariums, magnifying glasses and nets, and of course, slug races. Make an animal mask, listen to a story, hear live music, try ikebana, slurp some ice-cream and chomp some popcorn.
