Join Ijams for Family Fun!

Family Hootenanny

February 29, 2020

This annual celebration of all things owls features games, meet-and-greets, walks, pellet dissection, and an owl call competition! Adults and kids alike gain a deeper appreciation for these animals while having a “hoot” of their own.

Spring Celebration


Spring is a time for celebration! Winter has ended, warm weather has returned, and wildlife is becoming active again. Join Ijams naturalists and get in on the action with fun activities that give you first-hand experience with animals and plants!

Moth Night

July 24, 2020

Celebrate nature's nocturnal pollinators in honor of National Moth Week! Moth fans of all ages can join a worldwide citizen science project that literally shines the light on moths, celebrating their beauty, ecological diversity, and the role they play in the natural world.

Nature Nuggets

Join Ijams on the third Thursday of each month as we dip-net in ponds, go on trail hikes and discover natural treasures. Children ages 2-4 and their caregivers practice exploring nature with confidence and lots of fun!

Family Spooktacular

October 16, 2020

Chills of excitement will run up your spine at this fun evening for families with children ages 6+! Put on your nature-themed costume and get ready to play games (with candy), gather around a campfire for songs and stories, meet a live animal, and go on spooky trail walks.

Let's get social!
