the season, children dissect plant parts like bulbs and flowers,
experiment to find out if plants make sugar, investigate bugs
that help plants grow, use microscopes to see plants up close,
press flowers and plants to take home, and much more. Children
also discover what’s in a flower by taking apart and putting together
a giant flower — and children have an opportunity to look at things
through a bee’s eye view!

holidays: 11 a.m.-1 p.m.
Early Learner Activities include nature discovery, crafts, mini
