During the summer months, we host family-friendly Nature Nights at the Center. Nature Night activities start at 6:30 pm and include themed crafts and snacks, a guided nature walk, and an interactive presentation with live animal encounters! ** NOTE: NEW THIS SUMMER — Advance registration required for Family Nature Nights. Limited to just 50 people. Cost: $5 / person ages 2+ (including adults) **

Lisa Shore, Chief Engineer for Extravehicular Activities at NASA, will talk to us about what it’s like to train for and then live and work in space onboard the International Space Station. Part of working in space includes taking occasional spacewalks to maintain the space station or support science experiments. It’s not as easy as it looks in the movies. She’ll explain the parts of the US spacesuit, the Extravehicular Mobility Unit (EMU), what it really takes to get your space suit ready to go out the hatch, and what makes spacewalks so challenging. There will be a full size training version of the EMU for demonstration purposes. Audience members will have the opportunity to touch and get pictures of real space suit hardware.
