In Summer 2020 we will excite imaginations of all ages discussing how our friends from the Animal Kingdom inspired the creative fables, famous stories and legends of old! Brush up on Mythology and see our reptiles, aquatic amphibians and raptors becoming DRAGONS, SEA MONSTERS and GRIFFINS! Even our favorite childhood Fairytales include everyday backyard animals like our woodland creatures and farm animals! See how Fantasy legends from around the world got their descriptions from unusual insects, a unique animal, or misperception of the everyday. Animal exhibits & specific programs will be confirmed later this Spring, but will include some from our group of over 40 resident wildlife exhibits and will present 4 unique programs, ranging from new faces to familiar favorites!

This Fall brings our newest wildlife program, “Edible Animals,” which explores the different diets we eat around the globe and what causes those differences. We will learn about the natural food web that all we animals participate in – humans included!

Exhibits plan to include our new pot-bellied piglet, Patagonian Cavy, Saddled Birchir, Burmese Python, Green Iguana, Hedgehog, Rose-Haired Tarantula, Leaf Insects, and other special friends and exotic invertebrates.

Our programs include curricula on life science, biology, geography and chemistry, and are great for students of all ages. We hope to see you soon!

Most importantly, the program is VERY interactive and reinforces key vocabulary that the students are exposed to in science lessons throughout the year: Habitat, food cycle/web, Animal Classification, etc. The material covered in the program can easily be integrated into other subjects and the students are excited about seeing the different animals NHECM brings and interacting with them!

and in those years, I never saw a performance that was more fun, educational and interesting than the one I saw today. The way he held the audience’s attention, provided information and handled the animals all at the same time, was astounding! I definitely will see his program again, even if I have to make a road trip! – Former educator, Parent & Library Patron

New this Fall 2018 – Spring 2019, our “Wildlife Senses” program explores the AMAZING ways our unique creatures use their sense of touch, taste, sight, smell & hearing – just like us (but also SO different)!  Learn how far a raptor, like our new Eagle Owl(et), can see her prey, or how a canine, like our Fox, has their own “social network”, how a Raccoon cleans it’s food with human-like hands, and how reptiles, like our Tegu “tastes the air” with its tongue.  Exhibits plan to these fascinating animals as well as a few other exotic invertebrates, amphibians and some other special friends!

Booking now!  Please check our online Calendar for availability!
