Delmarva Discovery Center Programs Start June 30th.
We have daily programs starting on June 30th and running through September 7th! Sunday is our Discover Stem Lab, Monday is A Walk to Remember, Tuesday and Wednesday is Mommy and Me (Daddy Too!), Thursday is Fishing Fun, Fridays is Beaver Lodge Story Time, and Saturdays is our Awesome Animals program!
On Mondays, join our naturalists for a relaxing and educational walk on the nature trail! Travel along the Pocomoke River, through the Cypress Swamp, into the forest, and beyond. Observe three distinct plant communities changing under the influence of their natural environment.
Tuesdays and Wednesdays is our Mommy and Me (Daddy Too!) program from 10:30-11 am.. This program is specifically designed for children ages 2 -5, but all are welcome. Each program has a specific theme that relates to colors, numbers, letters, or animals. Make crafts, games, sing songs, and learn in a fun and engaging environment!
OnThursdays from 11-3, come fish with us at Steven’s Pond! Learn about fish native to the area – and if you are lucky, catch “the big one!” Children under the age of sixteen do not need a fishing license; all others must bring a valid license. We will meet at the Center & Museum, then walk over to Steven’s Pond. (Children need adult supervision. Please arrive no later than 11:15, but you may leave at any time.)
OnFridays, from 1-3, join us in the Beaver Lodge for story time and craft making! Learn about beavers, their animal friends, and the importance of being kind to others and the environment around you.
OnSaturdays it is our Awesome Animals and Craft program from 11:30- 12:15 pm. Turtles and crabs and snakes – OH MY! Come enjoy a fun and educational forty-five minute animal presentation on the animals that call the Discovery Center & Museum home. Then, make an animal related craft to take home.
Finally, on Sundays, from 12-12:45 pm, come join us for fun experiments in our Discover Lab Program! We invite teachers, students, and parents to also take part in our Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math programs!
