Meet friendly turtles and create a work of art while sipping vino.


Learn the truth about turtles!  Not all turtles are slow and our turtles from the Naturalist Center can prove it!  Meet “Crunch” our box turtle who survived a dog attack and has been a long term resident at the Museum. Mike Sanchez, the Naturalist Center Manager, will give you an up close encounter with our scaly critters, and share their stories and how they came to live at the Museum. Then join Kelly Jo Design by Wine to paint your own turtle work of art.  

21+ only (bring your I.D.) Tickets $40. All tickets include a voucher for one free drink and additional drinks can be purchased at the cash bar.  Supplies will be provided.

A portion of every ticket sale will go to help support the Naturalist Center at the Museum.
