Steam Sunday is back! Echoes of Nature will be joining us each month for $5 STEAM Sunday workshops. Each workshop will include a visit from one or more of their live animal ambassadors and a fun art activity. This month, we're learning how animals survive in the winter elements and creating beautiful woodland creature snow globes. 


All ages are welcome, but caregivers MUST be present. Each workshop costs $5 per FAMILY, regardless of the number of participants. Space is limited and registration is required.


Steam Sunday workshops are made possible through the generosity of the Nora Roberts Foundation.
