Join the Natural History Museum for Junior Urban Biologist Day on November 11! Have you ever looked closely at what lives in your own backyard? Join November’s Junior Scientist program to meet one of NHMLA’s scientists and discover why and how we study the plants and animals that live right here in our city. We’ll spend time in our Nature Gardens learning about a common backyard animal with a special city history, the squirrel! We’ll explore how squirrels live their lives in L.A., what roles they play in our urban ecosystem, and how our scientists study these city dwellers!
Junior Scientist is specially designed for 6- to 9-year-olds and their families. Packed with activities, demonstrations, and an up-close look at some cool (and sometimes creepy crawly) highlights from our collection, each month is a crash course in one of the many fields of science explored at the Museum. By asking questions, making observations, and using your own customized Junior Scientist Field Notebook, you’ll make science-based discoveries about topics ranging from the biggest dinosaurs to the smallest insects.
