STEAM with Wildlife: Mink Obstacle Course

Use your engineering skills and create an obstacle course for Elsa, our albino American Mink! We’ll learn about the mink, what things she likes, and what senses she uses to get around. Then we’ll use recycled materials to build her obstacle courses in the auditorium. Blandford will be providing a variety of recycled materials to pick from, and you can also bring recycled materials from home to use or share, but please make sure they are clean. At the end of the program, we will have Elsa test out your obstacle courses!

An adult chaperone is required to register and attend this program. 

This program is recommended for families with children ages 6+. 

Please Note: This program will take place mainly outdoors, but will have an indoor portion for the safety and comfort of our animals. In the event of severe weather, the program will be canceled, and participants will be notified of their refund options. All participants will be required to wear masks and groups will be socially distanced by family units.
