Get ready for a wild adventure at NatureFEST 2019! It’s a festival, a nature outing, and a fascinating museum trip all wrapped into one exciting day!

From live exotic animals to fish feedings by divers in our giant aquariums, NatureFEST! offers something for everyone. Families and young budding scientists won't want to miss live demonstrations of Mississippi reptiles with herpetologist Terry Vandeventer, citizen scientist explorations through the on-site Bio-Blitz, and behind-the-scenes tours with our scientists.

Outdoor enthusiasts can explore the museum’s native plant garden, play nature games, picnic at the pavilion with food from the food truck vendors (not included with admission), and take a hike (guided or self-directed) on our beautiful springtime trails.
