Event description

Description

Trees provide us with wood, food, and paper and help our environment in many ways. Explore and learn about our winter trees and their life cycle. Create a twig pendant to take home.




This workshop is part of QBG's February Break Series, February 21-24

Children can get their hands dirty as they sift and search through our Exploration Station from 12 to 1pm daily. Pick up a self-guided winter scavenger hunt and learn about our upcoming gardening programs for kids. (FREE)
