Learn about alligators and how to tell them apart from crocodiles during our "Specimen Spotlight" program tomorrow, Sept. 13, at 11:30 am in the Naturalist Center. Stay afterward to play games and browse books featuring crocodilians, reptiles whose ancient ancestors date back to the time of the dinosaurs.
Stop by the Naturalist Center anytime between 11 am-4 pm on Friday, Sept. 14, to make a very fashionable Claude hat for this week's "Naturalist Center Craft." Be sure to wear it proudly around the museum after you're done!
