Sloth Encounter

Caryl D. Philips Space Theater

Saturday from 1:00pm - 1:30pm

Spend time in a virtual rainforest with Patience, as the planetarium is transformed into a sloth habitat. This 30-minute program will highlight the habitat and various conservation concerns about sloths. Find out how YOU can help sloths thrive in the wild!

Please note that guests will be able to approach Patience at the end of the show for a closer look, but there will not be an opportunity to touch her due to the anticipated number of participants.

This program is included with regular admission; free for members. However, please be aware that seating in the planetarium is limited, and seats are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
