Junior Naturalist: Plant Diversity
May 12 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Sessions take place once a month from 1-2:30pm typically on the first Saturday. Each month we will cover a different topic, from bugs or birds to animal habitats and sleeping patterns! Hands on activities and special animal programs will be included.
Each child will receive a badge and booklet for attending the session. There is no limit to the number of sessions your child can attend since each will be cover a different topic. Come to all 12 or just come to 1!
May session will be plant diversity. Did you know sassafras leaves smell like fruit loops when you crush them? Learn to identify the plants and trees around you.
Parents are asked to stay with their children during each session.
