Earth Science Day turns 21 on Saturday October 6!
Join us at Penn Dixie from 9 am to 4 pm, rain or shine, to learn about Western New York’s natural history, ecology, and resources through interactive exhibits and demonstrations in a family-friendly setting. Experience hands-on learning in the science tent from groups like The Buffalo Zoo, Botanical Gardens, Bookmobile, Reinstein Woods, SUNY Buffalo Geology, Earth Dimensions, Past & Present Rock Shop, and many more. And — stick around in the evening for a fall stargazing program.
Thanks to the generous support of Erie County and our sponsors, Earth Science Day is FREE to ALL. All ages welcome. Penn Dixie members may present their membership cards to receive a special thank you gift at the event.
Teachers: Download our Earth Science Day Flyer or contact us in advance to schedule your group. There is no charge for unguided group tours on Earth Science Day but we request advance notice to help with our parking planning. Guided group tours are available at our usual rates.
