Where does a chipmunk sleep? What does an eagle feed its young? How do mother bats find their babies in a cave? In Animal Secrets, a special summer exhibit at the Houston Museum of Natural Science at Sugar Land, families learn the answers to these questions and more as they explore the hidden habitats and secret lives of forest animals. Using imaginative role-play and hands-on activities, visitors discover nature from an animal’s point of view in naturalistic environments, including a stream, meadow, woodland, cave, and naturalists’ tent.

A grant from the Wells Fargo Advisors Investing in Our Communities initiative helped bring the exhibit to the museum for families to enjoy this summer. City and museum leaders recently gathered to accept the donation gift from members of the Wells Fargo Advisors Greater Houston Market, including Paul Bobal, Managing Director – Market Manager.

“Children are born curious. They love learning about bugs and animals, investigating and exploring the world around them,” said Adrienne Barker, Director of HMNS at Sugar Land. “Animal Secrets provides a wonderful opportunity for parent-child interaction and we are so grateful to Wells Fargo Advisors for helping us bring this very popular educational exhibit to the families in our area.  It’s been a huge hit with the children so far.”

“Wells Fargo Advisors is proud to support the Houston Museum of Natural Science at Sugar Land,” said Bobal.  “Through our team member’s corporate philanthropy and community involvement, we are committed to building strong and vibrant communities and making a difference where we live and work.”

The Houston Museum of Natural Science at Sugar Land is currently open seven days a week during the summer.  For hours of operation and ticketing information, visit www.hmns.org or call (281) 313-2277.
