2015 Theme: Sensing Nature

Naturalists use a variety of tools to explore the natural world, but most rely on the tools we are all born with, our senses! We will explore our own senses and then find out which animals taste through their feet, have natural radar, can locate prey by sensing heat and have an eye that contains 30,000 lenses.

Join us for a three days of sensory exploration.
