Michigan Wildlife in Ann Arbor

White tail deer, robins and more are in the spotlight at the Ann Arbor Hands On Museum, hosting kids activities and fun the week of Aug. 8-12, 2011

Hands-on experiences are how kids learn about their surroundings – and all week long, the Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum delivers with its focus on Michigan Wildlife! From deer to robins, our home state's critters be the focus Monday till Friday, Aug. 8-12, 2011, at this cool series, which runs daily from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Kids will learn about Michigan's wildlife and natural resources each day this week through different activities. Mark your calendar for next week, too: That'll be the final wrap-up week of this unique program, and the theme for Aug. 15-19 will be Crime Lab!

Admission is $9 a person and includes all the fun exhibits the museum has to offer, including the inverted pendulum, revelations and the lights and optics gallery. See the Metro Parent listing for more on the Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum.
