NOTICE! Due to rising concerns and cases of COVID-19, we have made the difficult choice to postpone the nature connections program. We hope to reschedule in the near future.


After a two-year hiatus, Nature Connections is back. NHSM is kicking off the 2022 Nature Connection season with Clubapalooza. NHSM has had a long tradition of clubs which allow you to take a deeper dive into various subjects. Currently we have volunteer experts leading four different clubs, Archaeology, Fossils, Herps (reptiles and amphibians) and Leps (butterflies and moths). Each of NHSM 4 Clubs will be on hand with exhibits, hands-on activities and crafts.
