From Wildlife Wonders' exotic animal stage show and live raptors from Freedom Ranch, to fish feedings by SCUBA divers in our giant aquariums, NatureFEST! offers something for everyone.

Families and young budding scientists won't want to miss the live reptile program with Terry Vandeventer - "The Snake Man of Mississippi", citizen scientist explorations through the on-site Bio-Blitz, and behind the scenes tours of the aquariums, the research wing, and the museum's collections with our scientists.

Outdoor enthusiasts can explore the museum's Native Plant Garden, play nature games, picnic at the pavilion with food from one of the food truck vendors, and take a hike (guided or self-directed) on our beautiful springtime trails.

Be sure to visit the nature-themed interactive photo booth and take a fun photo to remember the day!
