No matter what the weather, Raven Hill is full of fun for all ages. The Hands-on Room encourages everyone to explore light, sound, music, magnets, motion, earth and life sciences. There's plenty to keep everyone occupied for a couple of hours. The Animal Room includes reptiles and amphibians to look at, pet or hold. There are also salt and fresh water fish to watch. If you want to endear yourself to the animals, bring broccoli or apples for the tortoises or worms for the turtle, gar and Miss Puff!
Volunteer Day is usually the first Monday of each month except September due to Labor Day. Come around 10 am to help whittle away at the refrigerator list of tasks. At noon, enjoy a potluck lunch and then head home or help out some more!
