Leslie Science & Nature Center presents Eco-Warriors

While you’re in motion at the museum or otherwise occupied, the Leslie Science & Nature Center is happy to have you drop off your children for Parents Night Out: Eco-Warriors from 5pm – 10pm. Kids who participate will learn how to protect habitats from invasive species and defend wildlife from The Most Deadly Animal in the World. They’ll also complete group challenges and design their own eco-warrior costume. Parents’ Night Out includes a Panera sandwich box with PB&J or Turkey as well as a late-night popcorn snack. Families are welcome to send their child with a dinner from home if that works better. Activities will happen outside as much as possible.
