$10/person
Huntley Meadows Park

Grab a net for a special day with a park scientist to see, touch, and study wetland creatures up close and personal.

Use magnifying lenses to study pond animals' unique characteristics. What critters live in the wetland? What can these little animals tell us about their home?

Children must be accompanied by a registered adult. This program will be canceled in the event of inclement weather.
