Field Trip : An Afternoon At The Burpee Museum

Sunday, Jan 27, 2019 at 12:30pm

Burpee Museum Of Natural History
737 North Main Street
Rockford, IL 61103

We have the honor of having John Walt for an afternoon at the Burpee Museum. John was involved with the making of one of Burpee’s newer exhibit: Survival of the Smallest. ‘Small but mighty, learn how insects are adapted for success in the natural world. From smells to sounds to amazing movements…each insect will tell you a story! We’ll enjoy the beautiful specimens of many different insects and learn how they compete, adapt and survive!’

John has also promised to give us a look behind the scenes at the museum. While visiting Burpee we’ll have time to view the many other exhibits from dinosaurs, local geology (a great follow-up from our Geology field trip in October), The First People, wildlife of the Rock River Valley, and a brand new Children’s Learning Laboratory.
