100th BIRTHDAY BASH, Sunday, June 9

NHMLA is officially 100 years old! Join us for a celebration featuring our new Nature Gardens and Nature Lab. Bring your family to kickoff summer with kid-friendly activities, workshops in the gardens, behind-the-scenes tours of NHMLA's collections with our scientists, and musical entertainment from the Ranger Band and Rhythm Child. Nature after dark is even more fun, so join JPL’s Adam Steltzner for a discussion about Mars rover Curiousity, visit food trucks, and take garden tours. DJs Raul Campos, Anthony Valadez, and Canyon Cody will be in the Mammal Halls, and see outdoor shows with DEVO and GZA/The Genius IN CONCERT!
