The University of Alaska Museum of the North is focusing on pollinators during family programs in May.

The self-guided Early Explorers program is designed for ages 5 and younger, with an adult. From May 7-14, families can participate in a museum hunt-and-find, pick up a free take-home activity—while supplies last— and explore hands-on activities at

Junior Curators, designed for children 6 and older with an adult, will be held at the museum on Saturday, May 14, from 2-4 p.m. Families are invited to drop in for activities and a themed scavenger hunt. Materials for at-home explorations will also be available.

These programs are included with admission and are free for members.
