To celebrate Earth Day, OMSI and The Nature Conservancy are kicking off a conversation about connections between people and nature called "What's Your Nature?" Nature lovers visiting the museum will share what the natural world means to them, learn how we are all connected to it and why it is important to our lives.
From 10am-2pm, join us in the Auditorium for special Earth Day craft activities and science demonstrations for the whole family. OMSI educators will present stage shows every 30 minutes starting at 10am, including Musical Tesla Coils, Elephant's Toothpaste, and Whoosh Cannons.
Beginning at 2:30pm, we will host a series of Pecha Kucha style lightning talks with local scientists and find out what Nature means to them.
