The N.C. Arboretum is excited to host the 9th annual Mountain Science Expo on Saturday, April 25, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Part of the state-wide North Carolina Science Festival, this family-friendly event features hands-on science demonstrations, guided programs and more than 20 exhibitors from the region. This year’s theme, “Anyone with a Question IS a Scientist” encourages children and adults to find their own “inner scientist” by uncovering common question they may encounter in their everyday lives. During the festival, visitors are encouraged to participate in the City Nature Challenge, a global citizen-science competition held April 24 – 27. The Arboretum is a co-leader for the Western North Carolina team and will host iNaturalist training, nature walks and bioblitzes throughout the day.
