Friends of the Domes hosts nature-related programs for families and children. Join Mr. Pete as we explore all things that frolic and fly!

Most programs are designed for 3- to 10-year-old children, but all ages are welcome. Cost: $10 per child. Adults who accompany a child are free.

Pre-registration available. Walk-ins are welcome (if the program is not full). Please note that admission to The Domes is not included in this registration. As always, Friends of the Domes members are able to access The Domes at no charge. Not a member? Join today.

For more information about the Friends Family Programs, contact the Lead Interpretive Educator.
