Whether you find yourself needing to homeschool your kids or to keep yourself entertained — or both — you can still turn to The Bishop Museum of Science and Nature. Although we’re temporarily closed, you can connect with us from home on Facebook to explore cool topics like fossils, gardening, astronomy, seashells — and of course manatees!

  • Noon, Friday, March 27: Garden-Variety Nature. Fun fact: There’s a lush outdoor garden at The Bishop, just outside the doors of the Mosaic Backyard Universe. Our curator Tiffany Birakis gives you a close-up look at our herbs, flowers, succulents and other plants, and even a few of the animals that depend on them. See how our garden grows!
