Exploring Nature

Combining nature, art and a little craftiness. Join our naturalist staff for some hands-on guidance to create a project that will help bring a little nature into your home.

Date: Saturday, May 3, 2014
Time: 1:00-3:00 pm
Cost: $30 members; $45 non-members.
Instructor: Tiffany McElweenie
Description:: Constructing a Terrarium lets you create your own miniature green space to bring a little nature indoors. On an inspiration-filled trek through our woodlands, we will gather mosses, lichens and other natural elements. Pick a glass container from our collection or bring a favorite of yours from home! We will provide all the ingredients to create this fun mini-ecosystem! (Makes a great gift for Mother’s Day!)
Note: Necessary tools and safety equipment will be provided. Cost of workshop includes materials to build one project. Kids of all ages 6 and up may attend. Under 13 requires an adult chaperone at no additional fee.
Note: Minimum registration is required to hold the class and is subject to cancellation if it does not.
