2024 Spring Program Sessions

Make your child’s spring break a wild adventure!

In partnership with Southwick’s Zoo, we offer three single-day educational programs for kids in grades 2-6 during April vacation!

Young adventurers will love exploring the zoo and learning about animals, conservation, and ecology through hands-on activities including games, crafts, and even meeting a few of the EARTH Discovery Center’s animal ambassadors

Tuesday, April 16: From T-Rex to Turkeys
9:00am – 3:00pm | Grades 2-6

$85 nonmember / $75 EARTH member

This program focuses on how modern animals evolved from their prehistoric ancestors.

By examining evolution, we can discover some surprising connections!

Did you know that the T-Rex is connected to turkeys and chickens?

Students will explore the connections between different species of animals and what makes them alike and unique.

Wednesday, April 17: It’s What’s On The Inside That Counts
9:00am-3:00pm – Grades 2-6

$85 nonmember / $75 EARTH member

Looking at how animals behave and function is fascinating!

In this program, we will explore animal behaviors, eating habits, body structure, and adaptations to discover what makes different species thrive in specific environments.

Thursday, April 18: Move it! Move it!
9:00am-3:00pm – Grades 2-6

$85 nonmember / $75 EARTH member

Locomotion is the name of the game here.

Not trains, but how animals move on land, in water, and in the air, as well as the unique adaptations that allow them to survive in their habitats.

Different species will be examined to figure out what makes them suited to their environment.
