As the heat of summer recedes, the woods and nature around us begin to change. Birds start heading south, bats begin heading into caves, and reptiles burrow underground. World Bird Sanctuary has several fun activities planned to give you and your family an opportunity to witness those changes first-hand. Come learn with World Bird Sanctuary!
“Panoramas of the City,” a new exhibit at the Missouri History Museum, will use over 50 photographs to bring St. Louis’s history to life. Through these images—several of which will be blown up so large that visitors will feel they can walk right through them—guests can experience St. Louis’s past in an unprecedented way.
This fall, the Twilight Tuesdays Edward Jones Concert Series at the Missouri History Museum will entertain audiences in Forest Park. This free, family-friendly music series will take place every Tuesday evening, Aug. 29-Oct. 3, from 6-8 p.m. on the Museum’s north lawn. The Museum will extend hours in the History Clubhouse and offer crafts for kids!
Summer for kids means swimming and staying up late. Summer at a pediatrician’s office means lots of yearly check-ups and pre-participation physicals (also known as sports physicals). A physical is recommended yearly for all kids over the age of 3 and more frequently for children under 3. The State of Missouri also mandates that all high school athletes have an annual physical done after Feb. 1 so summer is a natural time to have that done. The urgent care down the street, the retail-based clinic at your local pharmacy and even chiropractors are advertising that they can do them — so why not just go there?
