GREENSBORO, NC – The Greensboro Science Center (GSC) is expanding its Kiwanisaurus Treehouse Adventure. This expansion will add a 3-story treehouse and an observation deck. The new treehouse will feature a slide, a climbing wall, and obstacles for kids and kids-at-heart to explore. The GSC would like to thank our donors, the Howze Vu Family and the State of North Carolina, for helping with this expansion. In addition to the Kiwanisaurus Treehouse Adventure expansion, the GSC will also be adding a Sensory Trail to its zoo. Along the trail, guests will be able to look for nesting birds, listen to musical notes, and touch a variety of nature elements, from animal footprints to animal replicas. Activities along the trail are designed to engage the senses and connect guests to the natural world. The GSC would like to thank our donor, Piedmont Natural Gas, for this. Both the treehouse expansion and Sensory Trail will be opening soon, with more details to come.

See to Believe Returns

After a three year hiatus due to COVID-19, the GSC is happy to announce the return of See to Believe, its annual fundraising gala on September 22, 2023.

Guests 21 and older are invited to dance under the stars in our zoo and under the sea in the Wiseman Aquarium. High-energy show band Sleeping Booty will be playing a mix of old and new hits in the zoo, and steel drummer Tracy Thornton will be performing in the aquarium.

Heavy hors d’oeuvres from Pepper Moon Catering, a variety of premium beer and wine, and a See to Believe signature cocktail will be available as guests roam, discover, and celebrate the magic of the GSC. A photo booth, online silent auction, and Bourbon and Champagne Pull will also be available for guests to experience.

Join us for a fun night to celebrate the GSC’s newest exhibits and milestones, as well as our vision for the future. For more details and to sponsor, please contact Lauren Pacheco at lpacheco@greensboroscience.org or by calling (336) 288-3769 x1406.
