Conservation Quest Exhibit / Premiere Party
January 27, 2018 – April 29, 2018

Go Green! Learn about energy – what it is, where it comes from, how we use it, and why it’s important to use it wisely. Conservation Quest delivers important energy conservation messages, inspiring you to make thoughtful choices about energy use to help protect the planet and promote healthy living.

“Join the quest to go green and learn about energy and conservation,” invites museum director Charles Knight.

See how simple actions can make big differences for families, communities, and the planet:

  • Find ways to save with light bulbs, electricity, and recycling,
  • Explore solar, wind, and hydropower,
  • Connect circuits to power up lights, alarms, and fans,
  • Take the interactive green challenge,
  • See how much electricity you use,
  • Check out the latest energy-saving inventions and learn about the future of energy.

The exhibit is included in the regular museum admission fee of $6 for adults, $4 for youth ages 3-18, and $5 for senior citizens ages 60 and up. Museum Members are free with current membership.

“Conservation Quest” is open until April 29, 2018. See the video here.

“Conservation Quest” was created by Stepping Stones Museum for Children. The exhibit is sponsored locally by the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks, the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science Foundation, Feild Co-Operative Association, Inc., Sanderson Farms, Inc., The Walker Foundation, and Trustmark, and other generous sponsors.
