What to know before you visit
What would the world be like if you were the size of an insect or small animal? What dangers would lie in brightly colored, fragrant perches? What might lie coiled below the foliage of an exotic plant? What dangers could lurk as you trek through remote environs and boggy terrain? Come on an adventure with us during our Beasts of the Bog weekend—join us for two presentations that will leave you in awe of God’s creation.
Join Ron Dudek, The Flytrap Guy, as he presents “Invasion of the Insect Snatchers,” a look at carnivorous plants like the Venus Fly Trap and Pitcher Plant. How do flying creatures get lured into these traps, and why can’t they get out? Is this how God designed them or has something happened since Day 3 of creation, when God looked at all created plants and saw that they were all good? Learn the answers to these and other questions about plants that eat creatures, learn how to raise your own Venus Fly Trap, and earn a “Doctorate in Flytrapology” [Guests 12 and under]. This is a fascinating journey into a mysterious realm where plants turn predator!
Then, join Rick Teepen, herpetologist, with the ever popular Snakes Alive!, a look at reptiles from God’s perspective. What words come to mind when you imagine a snake? Slimy? Slithery? Dangerous?
Perhaps you have seen a snake in your own backyard and either ran away in fear or leaned in for a closer look, but most of us have never encountered one, let alone touched one. That can change when you visit the Creation Museum to see Snakes Alive! With six snakes, a bearded dragon, and a wealth of knowledge to share with parents and children alike, Mr Teepen reminds all of us that even snakes were created by God. “And just what is a bearded dragon?” you ask. Come to the Creation Museum and find out.
Shows are at 6:00 p.m., 7:00 p.m., and 8:00 p.m. on Friday, May 16, and at 11:00 a.m., 12:00, 1:00, 3:00, 4:00, and 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 17th. Tickets cost $1.50 with Museum Admission.
