This in-depth program will investigate the physiological and psychological ways scientists measure intelligence. Come learn which animals score the highest worldwide. We will then learn about some of the brightest of our local wildlife and how they rank on the intelligence scales and why. This indoor program will feature some live brilliant local birds.
