  • Make your own binoculars

  • Take a close look at the Wagner's historical bird collection, including an ivory-billed woodpecker, golden eagle, and a flamingo from the Philadelphia Zoo.

  • Philadelphia Metro Wildlife Center will have a fish crow, turkey vulture, and raptor skulls. The Wagner will complement their raptor skull collection with some passerine skulls, too!

The event runs from noon to 4 p.m. and activities will be happening in our lecture hall and museum all afternoon, so come anytime! Activities are geared toward children 6 to 12, but all ages can enjoy this event.
