Field Science with a Naturalist
At the Museum
Museum Backyard – Nature Club House
You never know what our naturalists will surprise you with! Depending on who’s on duty, they’ll show you specimens, maps, and more. Dr. Feather (Thursdays) is an avid birder with special expertise in Barn Owls. Dr. Rockenheimer (Fridays) is an expert on geology. Dylan “Spiderwoman” Otte (most Saturdays) knows all about—you guessed it—spiders. Dr. Wiggleworms (Sundays) shares displays of butterflies and insects. All our naturalists are full of fascinating stories and they’re happy to answer your questions or let your curiosity drive the conversation.
Naturalists take a half-hour lunch break at midday.
