A special exhibit it now at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences called Rainforest Adventure. It is an education trip to a tropical rainforest. The Museum’s website states “Swing like a spider monkey. Ride the butterfly zip-line. Discover a rodent that weighs more than 100 pounds and a beetle that can carry more than 850 times its own weight. Visitors to this new exhibition are invited to explore one of the least-known habitats on Earth in a fully interactive maze, chock full of the sights and sounds of a tropical rainforest. The journey begins in the highest treetops surrounded by migratory birds and radiant sunlight. In an effort to reach the forest floor, visitors must answer questions about the rainforest. Incorrect answers lead to dead ends, while correct answers lead them deeper into the four layers of the rainforest: emergent, canopy, understory and forest floor.” It’s a really fun way to learn for the kids with the activities and interaction within the exhibit. For more information of for tickets see Rain Forest Adventure.
