Learn more about water and what lives in it! Lab technician Basil Williams from the Museum’s Fish Collection will lead our adventure as we come face-to-face with some fishes.

We’re hosting weekend Family Discovery Camps this summer. Explore the natural world with scientists and Museum staff in this hands-on experience for the whole family. Discover how scientists work in the field and learn how to use the tools of science yourself.

Wear appropriate footwear and clothes that can get dirty or wet! We will be heading outdoors to explore the University of Florida Natural Area Teaching Laboratory. Camps are designed for children in grades K-6 and their family.
