Beyond Your Senses

November 6 2021 from 1:00 pm 3:00 pm

$20 member / $35 nonmember (per person)
Instructor: Kelsey Low
Ages 12 and up

There’s a whole world beyond the reach of human senses: ultraviolet, infrared, ultrasound… Discover the hidden signals that are undetectable to us, but part of everyday life for non-human animals. In this hands-on class we’ll use blacklights to discover how “dull” birds really shine, special microphones to eavesdrop on bats, and even test strips to determine if any of us have a super-human sense of taste!

Please dress for the weather and wear close-toed shoes.

The Arboretum is currently CLOSED due to the continuing power outage caused by Hurricane Beryl. All classes and events on Monday, July 15 have been cancelled or postponed. Please check back for updates.
