Join us for our next fun-filled and educational family event! All our exploration events have free activities based around our concepts of energy and water efficiency, watershed protection and waste reduction. We welcome explorers of all ages to drop by and discover the ways our daily decisions impact the world around us. These events offer something for both children and adults, and there is a different theme at each event. No registration necessary. For more information, give us a call (916) 746-1550.

Bird and Bug Bonanza

Saturday, February 1 • 10 am - 2 pm • FREE
A little bird told us that Bird and Bug Bonanza is the bee's knees! Buzz on in to our free, family event and you can talk to some live birds and bugs too! Flow down the storm drain on a journey to explore Cruddy Creek. Make your way through the indoor creek crawl and discover what belongs and what doesn't. Get to know some of the insects that help keep our ecosystem healthy. Peer through our microscopes to check out pond scum and hold red wrigglers right in your own hands. What can you learn from these fascinating bugs? Build your own birdhouse (while supplies last, $10 materials fee) to provide a healthy home for local backyard birds. Head to the game room to win prizes, get your face painted and have some fun learning how to keep our creeks and streams hopping with life!
