6:30 – 7:30 P.M. – Become immersed in Nature’s Neighborhood while enjoying specialty cocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres. This fun, quirky exhibit will stimulate your sense of sight and sound with our live beehive, an active leaf cutter ant colony and the wonders of the Neighborhood’s “forest” featuring several live animal exhibits! In addition to all the imaginative fun, there will also be unique photo opportunities.
