Take a close look, if you dare, of the creepy crawly critters that live in tropical climates. In this Halloween edition, join Audra Barrios of Things that Creep as she introduces you to herpetology, the branch of zoology dealing with reptiles and amphibians.

During this class, you will meet three unique species of geckos, including the New Caledonian Giant Gecko, the largest gecko in the world! This event is recommended for children, but suitable for all ages.

Class also includes a virtual tour and scavenger hunt. For an additional cost, bring the Conservatory into your home with our new at-home kits. Conservatory @ Home: Tenacious Tillandsia includes your very own Air Plant, hands-on activities, a hand lens, and a Conservatory pin.
