Unlike the traditional museum setting, the Naturalist Workshop encourages the touching of specimens. How much does a sugar pine cone weigh? Can you fit together a cow humerus and pelvis? How many kinds of minerals can you see in one rock? Tables laden with fur, rock, bones, plants, insects, a balance, magnifying glasses, and more provide opportunities for all ages to get in touch with items straight from nature. Additionally, there are field guides and a sightings board for any living organisms you might encounter as you explore the Austin Nature & Science Center.
We will meet at the front, I will be holding a sign with the Autism Society logo, then enter the exhibit together.
*YOU MUST RSVP IN ADVANCE TO ENSURE A PROPER HEAD COUNT. IF YOU DO NOT RSVP BY THE CUTOFF DATE, I CANNOT ENSURE WE WILL WAIT FOR YOU AT THE ENTRANCE BEFORE ENJOYING THE FESTIVITIES*
