untitled3 - Grand Opening of Homegrown

Roberson Celebrates Grand Opening of New Exhibition Tonight

FREE Reception part of First Friday Events

Roberson Museum and Science Center will host a free reception from 6-9pm TONIGHT – Friday, October 1 – to celebrate the Grand Opening of our newest exhibition, Homegrown.

Ever wonder what life is like inside the forest?
Explore life among the branches while Homegrown takes you through the forests and hills surrounding our community.

This isn’t your average walk in the woods!

Experience animal encounters and unleash your own creativity with animated creatures you design. Climb atop a tree house and discover the beauty of the forest from a birds-eye view.

Visitors are encouraged to keep their eyes peeled to discover the large variety of animals from Roberson’s Loomis collection incorporated into the gallery. 

Along with the fun comes interactive learning; Homegrown investigates the contributions natural resources found in the depths of the forest make to our everyday lives, while also examining the threats these resources face.

We invite you to use your imagination and discover life inside the forest without nature knowing you’re there!

Homegrown will remain open through June 2012
