CANCELED: Sci-Fi in Real Life

This event is no longer on sale.

Saturday May 23

1:30 PM  –  3:00 PM

Preregistration required. All ages are welcome, although program is geared towards adults and children ages 8 and up with an adult caregiver.

Program participants should meet in front of the Rowe Visitor Center at our Rowe Woods location.

Sometimes the natural world is stranger than fiction. On this interactive hike, learn about a few of the creatures and processes in nature that have influenced popular science fiction films and books. Is there truth behind sci-fi depictions of parasites, warring bugs, and trees that talk? Search for creatures that regenerate, play a "hive-mind" game, and invent your own sci-fi being. See what weirdness nature can produce right here in Southwest Ohio.

Members $5; nonmembers $10 (includes admission).
