In “The Life of Trees” a cheeky ladybug called Dolores and a quirky firefly called Mike take the audience on an adventurous journey of exploration into the wondrous world of trees. Attend the Creepy Crawlies Educational Institution to find out how trees live and their importance to the wider environment.

On the excursion Delores and Mike zip around a tree, and in doing so, playfully learn its secrets: How do plants get their food from the Sun? How do they grow? How does water get from the roots to the top of the crown? And how does all this make life on our earth possible?

“The Life of Trees” is a perfect planetarium show for the whole family that raises the awareness of protecting the natural environment in which we live.

Tickets for planetarium programs are $6 for Adults, $5 for UMaine Students/Veterans/Senior Citizens, and $4 for children under 12. Click here to view the calendar.

Tickets may be purchased online, by phone at 207.581.1341, or at the Emera Astronomy Center ticket box office prior to the show.
