Adopt-and-Release a Butterfly

Take part in a very special event! For $25, you can adopt a Monarch butterfly which you (or someone you designate) will personally release on September 21. Your butterfly will be tagged with a unique research number, and you’ll receive an adoption certificate listing that number, as well as two free admission passes to the release. A wonderful way to commemorate a birthday, anniversary, or graduation or to remember a loved one. Call (336) 714-7109 or stop by SciWorks. We sold out last year, so adopt early!

"If You Build it, They Will Come" 50th Anniversary Fun Day

50thIn 1964, a small nature center opened in a re-purposed building in Reynolda Village.

Join us as we celebrate 50 years of informal scientific learning in a hands-on, interactive setting. Try your hand at building in our “Tech City” exhibit and check out other special engineering stations. Take part in a 50-cent raffle and enjoy a slice of anniversary cake at 2 pm!
