Kids learn about and explore elements of the natural world, get a close-up view through microscopes and magnifying glasses, use a balance to check and compare objects' weights, and identify their finds with field guides. The exhibit features many touchable specimens. Within the Naturalist Workshop, and its many fascinating nature objects, you will find the Trade Counter. The Junior Naturalist Program is an engaging way for kids to study nature with their peers. Volunteer opportunities are available in this and many other areas of the Austin Nature & Science Center.
The Naturalist Workshop is located in the ANSC's Visitor's Pavilion and is available for visitors to explore during regular business hours.
