About: A perfect antidote to video games: Take the kiddies on one of four guided hikes around the museum's grounds. Lasting from 30 minutes to close to two hours, each hike examines a different natural environment (pond, field, woodland, or geological features) and teaches fun facts about topics like tree identification, animal habitat, and rock formations. The terrain ranges from the stroller-easy Field Quest to the moderately challenging Hiking Quest -- which will likely leave Mom and Dad more winded than Junior.
