Mark Your Calendar for These 4 Facebook Live Streams

Here in Southeastern Pennsylvania, we are fortunate to have easy access to many educational institutions such as museums, parks, and zoos.

With the current quarantine protocols in place, it has become impossible to visit some of our favorite places, perhaps when we need them the most. Luckily, there are numerous opportunities to not only take virtual tours, but also to sit back, relax and enjoy a live streaming feed of an educational program perfectly tailored to the little ones we may have at home with us. 

Here is a list of a few science and environmental organizations that are committed to staying connected to the community during this period of social distancing.
