Explore Botany and Zoology at the Ark Encounter This Spring

by Ark Encounter on March 25, 2021

We’re excited to announce that our popular Explore Days are returning to the Ark Encounter this spring! If your students are interested in learning more about botany and zoology from a biblical worldview, this is the program for them. Learn more about Explore Days and Explore Jr. opportunities your students can participate in below.

Explore Jr.

Our Explore Jr. program is a day of discovery and adventure tailored to younger children ages 5 and up. This spring, we will be offering Explore Jr. Zoology twice (April 30, 2021, and May 21, 2021) and Explore Jr. Botany on May 12, 2021.

From cute, little sugar gliders to massive camels, Explore Jr. Zoology at the Ark Encounter offers an in-depth look at a variety of animals in God’s creation. Learn about animal kinds and the dispersion of animals after Noah’s flood through close-up animal encounters with our trained zoologists.
