On April 22, 2022, learn about the world around you with educators, scientists and local partners.
Participants will explore decomposers and pollinators from the Museum’s extensive science and history collections. Local Master Gardeners will share the best way to plant seeds and care for growing gardens.
Fort Worth Museum of Science and History Members can harness the power of the sun with a special, member’s only workshop. At this workshop, guests will create their very own solar oven. Members can choose from two different time slots when registering here.
Additionally, Earth Day will kick of the Museum’s participation in Lights Out Texas, a biannual event that aims to protect migrating birds from collisions during the fall and spring bird migrations. During the spring migration, hundreds of millions of birds will migrate through the state of Texas as they travel north from their southern wintering grounds.
Due to light pollution in major cities, an estimated one billion bird deaths occur every year from collisions with buildings and structures. In an effort to protect these migrating birds, the Museum will turn off all non-essential lights during the critical peak spring migration period from April 22 – May 12, 2022.
