Soundscape Safari

Close your eyes and explore different habitats in a whole new way – through sound. Join us on a safari tour, and learn what makes forests, lakes and fields unique places for wildlife to call home. Find out what animals are really “saying” and create your own “soundscape symphony” to learn about how sound travels and how animals use it to communicate.
