The Coyote Point Museum for Environmental Education was founded in 1954, and welcomes more than 80,000 visitors every year with a variety of hands-on programs, science exhibits, wildlife encounters, gardens and more.
These are some of the museum's ongoing exhibits:
- Invertebrate Corner. Get up close to a Tarantula, Black Widow spider, or an array of Beatles at the museum's new exhibit. For more information visit the Coyote Point Museum website.
- Tinkering! Every invention, from a sewing needle to a solar cell, came about as the result of tinkering and experimentation. The museum's newest exhibit highlights tinkering in the process of innovation.
- Every day except for Sunday, at 11:00 a.m. the museum hosts a talk called "Animals in Action". Visitors will get to meet the Animal Keepers as they discuss a different animal every day and answer questions about animal behavior.
- Every day at 12:00 p.m. the museum hosts a River Otter Feeding. The river otters frolic and play during their daily feeding which can be observed from both above ground and through the underwater observation window.
- Every day at 1pm the museum hosts a Bobcat Feeding. Watch the playful young bobcats chow down during their afternoon feeding.
- Coyote Point Museum hosts a Paws and Claws Wildlife Show on Saturdays and Sundays at 1:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. Be entertained and learn more about wildlife.
