Tellus Science Museum Postpones Wakeboarding Program

Special program at Tellus has been rescheduled!

  Yes, Tellus Science Museum will have an amazing lecture and hands-on demonstration all about wakeboarding and a fascinating fossil demonstration.  No, they will not have old fossils (like me) riding wakeboards.  Sorry.

Mottled ducks along the Georgia coast are […]
