April 6 - Insect-A-Rama
Join us as we get up close and personal with our six-legged friends and explore the world of insects and other arthropods! Walk into our enclosed butterfly and ladybug tent and find out how you can create your own beautiful butterfly garden at home. Design your own insect as you learn about their different body parts. Visit with some experts from UC Riverside Entomology Department and find out how you too can become an expert on insects! We’ll also be sampling some delicious insect food items!

May 4 - Captain Carl and His Mobile Tidepool
Touch and observe a variety of sea life from our local oceans, pet a shark, hold a starfish and see where sea squirts get their names! Learn about the animals that once lived inside the seashells you collect on the beach and why you hear the ocean when you hold a large shell up to your ear! Find out how to make choices that will have a positive impact on our local beaches, marine life and ocean.
