Stamford Museum and Nature Center
This all-new program explores the many things that glow in the dark, from the stars featured in the Two Artists Look at the Sky exhibition to the animals that use bioluminescence in their daily lives. Participants are turned into fireflies and can make their own spark in the dark. After a hike on the trails, return to the Overbrook Nature Center for a chance to paint glow-in-the-dark masterpieces under black light. Participants are asked to bring a flashlight. Recommended for ages 6 and up.
Address: 39 Scofieldtown Road Stamford, CT 06903
The Stamford Museum & Nature Center is dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of art and popular culture, the natural and agricultural sciences, and history. The museum is a vital cultural and educational resource for the community, and a focal point for family activity and interaction. It seeks to inspire creativity, foster self-discovery, promote environmental stewardship, and nurture an appreciation for lifelong learning through exhibitions, educational programs, and special events. Enjoy a picnic on the Meadow, walk over 80 acres of nature trails, drop in to the Heckscher Farm and say hello to the animals, and don't miss the latest exhibition in the Bendel Mansion Museum Galleries.
