September 2015: Dabblers and Divers
It is the beginning of fall migration and a great time to discover ducks! Join us as we learn more about Dabblers and Divers how they all are getting ready for their long journey south.
October 2016: Animal Costumes
Many animals use camouflage and unique hiding places to stay safe from predators year round. Some ever become brighter and prettier at special times of the year. Families will explore animals such as the caddis fly, hare, trout and frogs to find out what they ‘wear’ at Halloween.

Fish make nests? It is spawning season at the Fluvarium! Join us to discover how a trout builds a nest and find out how important the riffle area is to the trout! You may even be lucky enough to see a female brown trout making a nest for her eggs.
December 2016: Giving Back
In this season of friends and family, how can we show that we care while respecting the Earth? Families will discover ways to make their gift giving more green and how we can give back to the Earth during the holidays.
January 2017: Life Goes On
Join us to help prove that there are still lots of animals active and awake all winter long! Once we know which animals are still near the stream, we can find ways to help make the winter months a little easier for them*!
