Does your child know the many jobs our four-legged heroes do so well? Test their knowledge with Explorers Jr.: Heroes with Four Legs — for Pre-K through 1st Grade!

The Putnam Museum’s (1717 W 12th Street Davenport) Explorers Jr.: Heroes With Four Legs will take place this Saturday Feb 1 from 9 – 11 a.m.

They say “dogs are man’s best friend!” but they are so much more than that! This workshop is sure to grow your child’s appreciation for canine companions in our community!

Parents can rest assured during Putnam Explorers (Grades 2-5) & Explorers Jr. (Pre-K – 1st grade) workshops that their children are given the tools to examine, investigate, create and invent while exploring the museum and participating in fun, hands-on activities guided by Putnam educators.

This workshop is $11 for Putnam Members and $14 for nonmembers.

Advanced registration is required! Sign up online, or register over the phone by calling 563-324-1933.
