Rasmussen Reptiles is charging us a fee for this field trip since they are bringing in extra staff just for our science lesson. The price is $3 per child, ages 2-17. Everyone else is free.
Payment is required in advance via Paypal or check. There is no "Pay at the Door." Your spots with our group are saved when payment is received.
If you cannot join us for this field trip, you can see a few creatures (pythons, tortoises, geckos, cameleons, monitors, iguanas) during the Rasmussen Reptiles store presentation at Mobius Science Center on March 2. Regular museum admission rates apply ($7 kids, $10 adults).
