During the event, children can create their own pollinating insect to take home, try to survive the perils of the life-size migration maze, and see a live beehive. Insects and birds from the Museum’s collections will be on display, and live butterfly releases will take place at Noon and 3:00 p.m.

Super Saturdays offer thematic activities recommended for children ages 5 and up each month. Activities take 30-40 minutes to complete and are included with Museum admission.
