About

A bird's eye view of a horseshoe crab.

By examining fossils and other clues we can learn all about modern-day animals and their ancient ancestors! Join human museum staffers Javier and Arielle as they lead you in a 45-minute program with live animals and specimens from the museum collections. This event will be fun for the whole family so bring your questions and sense of wonder.
