About the Program

Calling all adventurers! Spend time enjoying the Skirball’s outdoor spaces, celebrating the natural world, and discovering connections between the past and present. As you traverse the campus, keep an eye out for Noah’s Ark puppets scurrying past or flying overhead!

While exploring, you can:

  • Spark your senses on a self-guided nature walk
  • Contribute to a colorful community art project
  • Hear an engaging flood story told by a Noah’s Ark educator
  • Uncover replicas of ancient artifacts buried in sand at the popular Archaeology Dig, now open exclusively for Noah’s Outdoor Explorers!

Upon arrival, each child will receive a complimentary “Explorer Kit” to use during your visit and keep for future outings. Afterward, we hope you’ll feel newly inspired to take care of the earth and one another.
