Our Planet Earth

Discovery Place Kids | Rockingham

Celebrate all that our environment gives us and learn how to return the favor by keeping our planet clean. 

Join us for a variety of special programs throughout May as we explore ways to protect Earth and provide a safe place for plants, animals and people to live.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, learn about the mighty Sunflower Sword and plant a sunflower to take home. On Wednesdays and Fridays, get to know our caped crusader friend, Michael Recycle.

Plus, the Museum will be open Monday, May 29, for even more hands-on fun!

Additional activities this month include:

May 6 - A Visit from Nature Cat: Ever wonder how to be a nature explorer? Join Nature Cat, “backyard explorer extraordinaire,” for a fun day of natural world discovery.

May 6 & 7 - Let’s Grow: Investigate the life cycle of a seed and plant one to take home.
