We are back at the Stamford Museum and Nature Center for another Cub Scout Polar Bear with a fun “Critters & Cryptids” program. Cryptids are creatures whose existence is based on alleged sightings and recordings. Cryptozoology is the study of cryptids to analyze in a scientific fashion. Join us for a winter day of fun as Scouts become “Cryptozoologist” to study these mystical creatures as well “critters” that really do exist.
Eight Action Stations — Both Indoor and Outdoor Stations
- Cryptozoology: Real or Reality — While the existence of the Yeti and Loch Ness Monster are still unknown, there are many animals like the giant squid and okapi that really do exist. Test your knowledge in our Real or Reality cryptid trivia.
- Fabulous Furbearers– Discover the largest mammals that really live in CT- black bear, moose, deer, and coyote—in this hands-on artifact lab.
- Magical Beasts and Where to Find them: Discover some real-life magical beasts up close and personal!
