Summer Activities at the MNHM

Coastal Explorations with the Marion Natural History Museum – During the Marion Natural History Museum’s Coastal Exploration summer program, we have fun exploring a variety of habitats in Marion. We take a close look at Barrier Beaches, Vernal Pools, Salt Marshes and tide pools. We learn about the types of Terns on Bird Island, the salamanders and tadpoles in vernal pools and net fish along our coastline. This is a half-day program, 9-12, and we meet at a variety of locations in Marion.

            We have a few slots remaining in our July 11-15 session and our August 1–5 session. Please go to the Marion Natural History Museum’s website,, to enroll in these and/or our other upcoming summer programs.
