Nature’s Superheroes:
Life at the Limits

On View October 6, 2018 – January 1, 2019

Life may have started as a single celled organism, but four billion years of evolution has created an astonishing amount of plants and animals—each amazingly adapted to its environment. Animals that make their homes in the burning heat of thermal vents. Jungle flowers that smell like rotting flesh. Challenge your expectations and explore the staggering diversity of life as you discover the extreme adaptations that allow organisms to thrive all over the world in this immersive new special exhibit.

Special Event: Join us Saturday, October 6 for Animal Superhero Day
