Lunar New Year
February 10, 2024
10:00 am – 5:00 pm

The EcoTarium invites you to our Lunar New Year celebration, featuring a live Lion Dance performance by the Imperial Lion Dance Team! Join us to experience special educator-led programs, planetarium shows, and tabletop activities where we’ll discover cycles in nature and movement in space! We will also be unveiling our very own “Symbolic Dragon,” created with specimens from our collection, as part of our Natural History Showcase exhibit in celebration of the Year of the Dragon!

This will be our resident bearded-dragon’s last public event before being returned to his original home, so don’t miss your opportunity to bid farewell to Damascus!
