Turtles: Secrets of the Shell
Toys for Tots Drive
Turtles: Secrets of the Shell will exhibit at the Museum & Aquarium beginning in March 2013. The exhibit includes live animal displays, audiovisual presentations, informational panels, hands-on experiential components, and educator led programs. After display at the Museum & Aquarium, key components of Turtles will travel to nature centers across Iowa. The traveling exhibit, Turtles! A Traveling Exhibit for Iowa's Environmental Learning Centers, includes educational and experiential learning activities, as well as informational panels. Turtles! will travel to at least eight nature centers in 2014, and will likely continue traveling throughout 2015.
The exhibit Turtles: Secrets of the Shell, supports the Museum & Aquarium's mission to explore life of the Mississippi River and the rivers of America and their global connections, and to research, interpret,educate, and promote the conservation of their historical and natural environment. With the opening of Turtles, we hope to draw attention to the tremendous conservation challenges faced by these animals.
