Description

What is a geologist? Discover some of the different rocks and minerals that are on planet earth. Learn about why some rocks float and why others look like a layer cake and what exactly is the difference between a rock and a mineral? We’ll also explore some rocks and minerals that are found here in Riverside.

Discovery Days is an ongoing children’s program focused on teaching kids about different aspects of nature and science, which features hands-on activities, live animals and plants, and animal experts engaging kids in the process of discovery. Discovery Days takes place inside Nature Lab on the third Wednesday of every month. This program is best for ages 3 - 10.
