Family Adventure Walk: Discover Animals!

Janes Walk

Led By Betsy Wilson

Meet at SICM’s iconic outdoor sculpture “Francis The Praying Mantis” to join on an informal walk that includes a stop inside “Bugs and Other Arthropods” exhibit and then tours select gardens on the grounds of Snug Harbor to find other animals. At different times of the year, you may find birds, fish, turtles, butterflies and more! Learn how insects and other arthropods are essential, and without them, humans and other animals could not survive.
