Does your child have all the koala-fications of an animal-lover? Children in first through fifth grade who do are encouraged to enroll in Spike’s Club, an after-school program at the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History.

Theme of this year’s club will be “Amazing Animals.”

From the rare and strange to the colorful and cuddly, animals come in all shapes and sizes. Children in Spike’s Club will discover the wildest creatures on Earth and explore how animals use their senses to survive in all sorts of amazing places.

“Animals use their senses, just like we do,” public program coordinator Sarah Novak said. “In Spike’s Club, we’ll be exploring the differences between our own senses and how animals use theirs.”

Registration for the five-week fall session is underway.

Spike’s Club is held one day a week at the museum, at Timberdell Road and Chautauqua Avenue.

Session I, for children in first and second grades, will be from 4 to 6 p.m. Tuesdays, Sept. 9 through Oct. 7. Session II, for children in third through fifth grade, will be from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursdays, Sept. 11 through Oct. 9.

Cost per five-week session is $40 for museum members or $50 for nonmembers.

Each participant will receive a Spike’s Club T-shirt with registration.

To register or for more information, call the museum education department at 325-1008.

Early registration is recommended.

Spike’s Club is sponsored in part by Fowler Auto Group, Arvest Bank and Republic Bank & Trust.
