April 21- Science Community Day
This Community Day Celebration promotes the Power of Partnerships in Bird Conservation as we explore the birds that make fantastic journeys and the rich history and story-telling surrounding them. The Museum’s celebration will feature bird inspired games, bird-themed art, and educational activities designed for visitors of all ages.
Community Day promises to be a fun-filled family-oriented afternoon with something of interest for everyone. Attendees can expect to take walking tours of Nay Aug Park, kids and families can participate in a nature story walk In addition to the hands-on activities throughout the Museum, students from the Museum’s year-long S.T.E.A.M. Quest program will showcase their final designs on-site at the Museum.
And of course, visitors can take a self-guided tour of the Everhart’s Bird Gallery which includes more than 2,000 ornithological specimens, a legacy from Museum founder Dr. Isaiah Fawkes Everhart who was an avid bird collector and amateur taxidermist. This collection is an important scientific resource for the region and includes specimens from India, Africa, Oceania, South America, and North America, including several Pennsylvania specimens such as the Ruffed Grouse.
Additional Community Days are listed below. Descriptions of the days’ activities and more information will be updated closer to the event dates.
