prehistoric planet vacation week at the ecotarium photoWhen school's out, the EcoTarium is the place to be. Each February, our education team cooks up creative ways to learn and have fun -- all designed especially for school-age kids and their families.

What was the world like when dinosaurs roamed the Earth? Dig in with paleontology and geology to learn about the history of our planet. We will track footprints, touch real fossils, meet distant descendants of the dinosaurs, and more!
