This summer, stay connected to adventure! 

Adventures in Nature is moving online, and we invite you to join us to explore exciting Museum topics— from dinosaurs to dire wolves, and alligator lizards to the creatures off our coast! Enroll your children in interactive virtual classes and they will learn about fascinating subjects that spark children's natural curiosity and creativity.

Registration will open for Members and Community Partners on May 7, 2021, at noon, and Non-Members on Monday, May 10th. 

We are excited to offer 4 sessions from July 6-30th. Each week, we will focus on a different theme: 
July 6–9  |  Dinosaurs! Dino Discoveries- Join us to imagine life for these giants of the past!
July 12–16  |  Wild L.A. City Safari- Explore the wildlife that calls Los Angeles “home”!
