Academy Winter Games: Turtle Curling

Wednesday, February 14, 2018

11:00 AM-12:00 PM

Let the Games begin! Our animal athletes have been practicing their cold-weather sports. They are set to compete at the Academy as the world turns its attention to the human games in South Korea. Join us for daily shows featuring bobsledding, ice dancing, curling, speed skating, and hockey. We’re even bringing out our ever-popular roach races! Everything is free with admission and registration is not required.

Who has more talent—our eastern box turtles or our wood turtles? The two “teams” will compete in a curling event in our auditorium as you learn about differences in species, how turtles cope with winter weather, and how their senses help them survive in the wild.

Remind me about this event. Notify me if this event changes. Add this event to my personal calendar.
