During that time kids from ages eight to 11 will have an opportunity to “get up close and personal” with plants in the Biology Things workshop.

They will also learn how plants defend themselves without fists and why they are so important to all life on earth.

Participants will also create some artwork using plants and should come prepared to do some painting.

Younger siblings are welcome to attend with a participating adult. No registration is required and drop ins are welcome, a $2 donation per participant is suggested.
