Trivia Night

Think you know your natural history?

Prove it! Grab your smartest friends and join our staff quizmasters to battle other teams in a test of your knowledge of animals, plants, dinosaurs, and more!

There will be prizes for the teams that come out on top, as well as a very "crappy" prize for last place! The last place team receives the honor of having their team picture displayed next to the Golden Coprolite Statue in the lobby! Prizes may include membership vouchers, gift shop discounts, or free passes.

Teams up to 4 people allowed.

Cost: $2 for Members, $5 for Nonmembers
