Event Description

Ditch your winter blues and head to the Burke's next NiteLife event, Offspring Fling. Photo: Sea

Ditch your winter blues at Burke NiteLife: Offspring Fling! Enjoy a specialty cocktail by Westland Distillery while you learn about the awesome, adorable, and unexpected ways plants and animals procreate and care for their young. Get up-close to specimens from the Burke's natural history collections—from flowering plants to teeny-tiny baby spiders to delicate birds nests. Chat with Burke experts about the ways baby mammals' fur changes as they grow into adulthood and how freshwater mussels have evolved fleshy lures to attract fish that carry their larvae. You can even hear from the Center for Biological Diversity about the impact human offspring has on the environment as part of their Pillow Talk program. PS - Did you know some octopuses lay eggs? Admission includes two drink tickets. Additional drink tickets are available for $5 each. Valid photo ID required for alcoholic beverages.
