  • What’s up Water Cycle – Learn how we are connected to the water cycle through a matching game.
  • River Clean Up – Help ‘clean up’ a river and discuss how an animal might mistake litter as food.

  • Aquarium Cuisine – A hands-on activity will allow guests to prepare a meal for one of our animals (using artificial food)
