Our museums remain closed due to COVID-19. While LA County Public Health has entered Phase 3 of the Roadmap to Recovery, allowing for the reopening of museums on June 12, our museums are still slowly welcoming back staff and are in the process of planning for new health and safety protocols in our galleries and gardens. Therefore, we will not be reopening until later in the summer. Sign up here to be the first to know when we will safely re-open to the public and in the meantime, stay connected from home.

Free, RSVP required

Youth ages 5-19 will learn how to do science in their community by taking part in a bioblitz to find wildlife in their neighborhood. While they explore, they'll be testing a new nature exploration mini-toolkit! The toolkits are designed for youth to observe nature in the city and suburbs. We need help from youth of L.A. to tell us what they think about the kits to make them even better. Participating youth will be able to take home the mini-toolkit as a thank you gift!

During the event, you’ll also see wildlife specimens from the Museum collections and learn about the diversity of nature in L.A. from Museum scientists and educators.

Inside the mini-toolkit is a plastic vial, magnifier box, petri dish, macro lens clip, case, and instructions

This event takes place at Transfiguration Church (2515 West Martin Luther King Junior Boulevard Los Angeles, CA 90008).

Parents/guardians must attend this program with their children (ages 5-17), as paperwork for both parent and child will need to be filled out onsite to test the mini-toolkits.
