Event Details

Children can learn much about the natural world by studying the life cycles of butterflies and planting a garden that attracts them and other pollinators.   In this series of three indoor and outdoor classes, children and parents will learn all about the lives of the monarch and other butterflies, the plants and flowers they need to survive, and how to grow a garden that will help them thrive.

This series is designed for families with home schooled children in grades 1 through 6.  Only 1 adult must accompany each child during this program as space is limited.  Please note that we cannot accommodate any children who are not currently in first grade.  This includes the younger siblings of any registered participant as well as any toddlers or babies in arms, carriers, slings, or strollers.

Series Schedule:

(Classes meet from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM)
