Upcoming Events

August Fireside Fun
Friday, August 26, 2022 - 5:30pm to 7:00pm
Ages: All ages

There's nothing quite as relaxing as sitting around a campfire, roasting marshmallows and swapping stories. We'll provide a blazing outdoor campfire, you provide the rest! Bring your family, friends, camp chairs, outdoor games, and s'mores fixings if you want them. Outdoor fires are held rain or shine (except for thunder and lightening), so come dressed for the weather.

Because this event takes place entirely outdoors, mask are highly encouraged but not required, for participation in this event. 

Walk-Ups are welcome, pre-registration not required.

Monarch Migration Festival
Sunday, September 11, 2022 - 1:00pm to 4:00pm
Ages: ALL ages welcome!

Join the Leslie Science & Nature Center as we celebrate the incredible migration journey of the Monarch butterfly! 

Every year, waves of these butterflies migrate over mountains, deserts, and plains in the United States to reach their wintering grounds in Mexico. By registering for this event, you are helping contribute to the conservation efforts put in place to protect these incredible butterflies locally and nationally. In fact, your registration fee goes directly to support the rearing and conservation efforts locally!  

For those who register, you will have the opportunity to be a part of the main event: releasing your very own monarch butterfly or sponsoring a butterfly for us to release in our pollinator garden! 

Registration is required.
