Inquiry Room Investigation OR Virtual Experience

Discover the ingenious adaptations of frogs and how they help us understand our world. Explore physical and behavioral adaptations that make it possible for frogs to live in tropical forests, frozen tundras, and scorching deserts. Get a first-hand look at live frogs while learning about their role in the environment and making “frog skin slime” to take home.

For digital programs, our educators will work with your classroom to determine which platform works best to facilitate this experience.

In-person capacity may be limited in compliance with public health guidelines in effect on the day of your visit.
