Wonder, Imagine, Believe

Ever wonder if Bigfoot exists? Can you imagine seeing a Sasquatch?  Believe it or not, the Great Lakes Children’s Museum is conducting a Merry Mystery Sasquatch Search this holiday season.  Come with curiosity. Use sasquatch science to investigate and explore the mystery of Bigfoot.  Have some fantastic fun following and making your own footprints.  Ask questions: “If bigfoot is out there, what would he eat, where would he hide, what does he sound like?” 

Find the answers to all your sasquatch questions. 

The science is in the searching.
