The Florida Museum’s mission is inspiring people to care about life on Earth, which includes nature. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, we can start by appreciating the natural world right in our own backyards.

Using Museum resources, spend a day, or an hour, learning about Florida’s backyard wildlife. Use our field guides, online activity guides and brochures to have fun and learn about the world we live in. As Shakespeare said, “One touch of nature makes the whole world kin…”

This *VIRTUAL* event is presented in partnership with the University of Florida Thompson Earth Systems Institute and will feature activities that are family-friendly, FREE and fun for all ages!
