This holiday season, Adventure Science Center has so much going on that we can’t contain it all in just 12 days. There will be breakfast with Science Claus, bird feeder workshops, appearances by Dr. Winter, the annual Science of Beer and more. Mark your calendar and plan to join in all the fun. (Advance registration required for some events.)

Jan. 2 – Winter, It’s Not for the Birds!
Join us as we EXPLORE the birds of Tennessee and bird migration. Make your own winter peanut butter bird feeder to take home.
