The Junior Naturalist Club is the Museum's exciting membership offering for children aged 7-12! The club promotes discovery and enjoyment of the natural world, while encouraging curiosity and exploration in its members. The club meets each month -- typically every second Saturday -- for an 'excursion' during which members will investigate a unique local ecosystem or animal. Excursions will be led and supervised by Museum education staff, and will range in length from 1-3 hours. These monthly excursions are limited to Junior Naturalist Club members only.
