Ranger Rick's Backyard Safari. Free-flying birds, such as this blue-headed macaw thrill guests during special programs. Throughout much of the rest of the day, animals like turtles, reptiles, amphibians and mammals such as a woodchuck, hedgehog or opossum. By meeting these wonderful creatures up close, guests gain a better understanding of their natural adaptations, habitat and role in the environment. Hopefully this experience will "follow everyone home," inspiring them to take a look at their own backyard habitat. This Saturday, July 23rd at 2:30 pm Aquarium visitors will have an opportunity to explore Ranger Rick's Backyard Safari and then learn what it takes to certify their own backyard habitat.
