Swing Into the Library This Summer to Start Your Rainforest Adventure

Rainforest Adventure | May 22 – Aug 15, 2021

Head to the Alice C. Sabatini Gallery this summer for a tropical rainforest journey!

Swing like a Spider monkey! Discover a rodent that weighs more than 100 pounds and a beetle that can carry more than 850 times its own weight! Rainforest Adventure is a fully interactive maze where you can explore the sights and sounds of a tropical rainforest.

Frog Jump: Frogs can jump more than 10x their body length. How far can you jump?

The journey begins in the highest treetops surrounded by migratory birds and radiant sunlight. Answer questions about the rainforest to reach the forest floor. Incorrect answers lead to dead ends. Correct answers lead you deeper into the four layers of the rainforest – emergent, canopy, understory and forest floor.

Created by Minotaur Mazes, Rainforest Adventure demonstrates how essential rainforests are to human health and survival. By caring for the rainforest we are caring for the planet.

This 20th annual art exhibit for children is made possible in part by The Library Foundation through contributions from the Sabatini Family Foundation and The National Endowment for the Humanities: Democracy demands wisdom.
