NEPM Days at the Springfield Museums!

Please join us for NEPM Days at the Springfield Museums on Tuesdays and Thursdays, Aug. 2 – 11, from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Based on the popular PBS animated kids’ series, “Nature Cat: Backyard and Beyond” is an interactive, bilingual exhibit that inspires families and children to understand that nature discovery can happen anywhere!  Various areas of the exhibit provide opportunities to learn about nature, use math skills to explore the natural world, use tools to investigate environments, and — equally important — work and play together.

During NEPM days, Nature Cat will make meet-and-greet appearances, and families can take home PBS-themed games and activities.  If you’re an NEPM member, please let the Museums know to receive $2 off admission!

You can also see this promotional video in Spanish (en español).
