Discover the incredible wildlife that lives right under our noses! Join us for a special screening of Backyard Wilderness, an exuberant, beautifully shot 3D giant-screen film that uncovers the amazing ecosystems all around us—from vernal ponds where tiny reptiles lay their eggs to nearby woods where the laws of nature are on full display.

After the screening, jump into action in the Museum’s very own backyard. A limited number of tickets are available for a screening and BioBlitz experience, where Museum educators will be on hand to help you find treasures on the lawns around the Museum. You’ll identify trees, flowers, birds, insects, and more. Nurture your inner naturalist and go on your own adventure!

Presented in collaboration with the World Science Festival.
