Event Description

This session introduces students to ecology, life cycle, classification, and human use of freshwater mussels in Tennessee, which are important ecological species in the state. The McClung Museum offers Enhanced Learning Homeschool Programs. These 90 minute sessions cost $5.00 per student and give students a chance to experience hands-on learning in the museum’s galleries. Online reservations are required, payment must be made in advance, and the fee is nonrefundable. Programs are designed for K-12 students, except the “Bones and Fossils” session, for which students must have at least completed 4th grade. Please note that caregivers attend the program for free (optional), but each student must have an individual ticket purchased under their name.
