    Scout Program: Water Wonders Scout Day - FULL
    Sunday, April 30, 1 - 4 pm
    Scouts of all ages can join us for this hands-on day of exploring water habitats, their inhabitants, and ways that we can help to keep our water sources healthy. We'll explore the vernal pool and stream habitats, meet some animals that live in and rely on water, perform some awesome water experiments, and complete a scavenger hunt in our Powerful yet Fragile: Connecticut's Waterways photography exhibition in the Stamford Museum. Scouts will rotate through activities in small groups. To register, please e-mail Lisa Monachelli, Director of Education, at Limited enrollment. Scouts may register individually or with their troop/pack.
