Start Your Summer Adventure Tomorrow

Tomorrow is opening day–and no, we’re not late to baseball season. It’s the grand opening of our summer exhibit, Rainforest Adventure! The final touches are being put up and our staff will be taking a tour of this a-maze-ing exhibit later today. The celebration really kicks up tomorrow with a few extra activities that we’ll have throughout the day.

Rainforest Rubber: Did you know rubber bands and bouncy balls wouldn’t be possible without the rainforest? Learn more about rubber trees and make your own rubber to take home!

Animal Art: Make beautiful butterflies, slithering snakes, or even a totally awesome toucan all day long in Creation Station.

Storytime in the Jungle: Take a break and read one of our many books all about rainforests with your family in Tiny Town or upstairs.

Cold-Blooded Critters: The rainforest is full of unique animals, especially reptiles! Come learn more about these amazing animals, and compare what you’ve learned about rainforest snakes to some of the animals you can find in Tennessee and other parts of the world. (presentations at 10:30, 12:30, 2:30, and 4:30)

Rainforest Adventure will be at Discovery Center through September 3.
