Madison Children’s Museum Rooftop Ramble June, July, and August 2013
Location:
Madison Children’s Museum, Madison WI
Dates: Saturday, June 22nd, July 27th, and August 3rd 2013
On Saturday June 22nd, July 27th, and August 30th, MAHS presented at the Madison Children’s Museum on native species of Wisconsin as well as the top 10 beginner reptiles, and the general differences between reptiles and amphibians. Visitors found out which species can be found right here in Wisconsin, and their own backyards and learned all about their habitats, what they eat, and more! In July, MAHS held an encore presentation featuring several of the top 10 reptiles for beginners. Visitors had the chance to see and learn about what it takes to care for a reptile, and which species make the most suitable choices for the beginner. Finally, MAHS presented a summer finale where we educated visitors on the general differences between reptiles and amphibians, and took a more active role in spreading the word about our station to patrons throughout the museum. MAHS looks forward to continue working with Madison Children’s Museum in doing rooftop ramble events as well as additional, more individualized workshops and sessions in the future!
