2016 THEME: Language of Color

Whether it’s the bright red feathers of a cardinal, the brilliant orange wings of a butterfly or the stripes of a zebra, animals display color in vastly different ways and for different reasons. Journey with us to investigate the nature of colors and patterns – for camouflage, to startle predators, mimic other animals, attract a mate or intimidate a rival.

2016 THEMES

ODD WEEKS: Stayin’ Alive
Animals in the food chain do everything they can to stay alive. Over time, many have developed amazing adaptations that keep them from becoming the next item on the menu. Some have clever camouflage, some have built in armor and others even sacrifice body parts!

EVEN WEEKS: Wild World of Reptiles
Reptiles rock! Shockingly diverse, turtles, tortoises, lizards, snakes, alligators, crocodiles and the rare tuataras are all reptiles, but different in their own way. We’ll uncover the characteristics all reptiles share before exploring each group and what makes them unique.
