Take a closer look at nature's treasures
You probably love playing in your backyard, but did you know there may
be some fun, furry friends making their home beneath your feet?
Learn all about the animals and their habitats that spend some of their time underground including chipmunks, groundhogs, striped skunks and woodland mice.
Then get ready for some splish-splash fun, as you make it rain into the stream at the water table. Remember to put your apron on!
You can also paint with water on our unique concrete canvas. Will you make a self-portrait or a masterpiece of your favorite animal?
