One Tuesday each Month (Jan. to Nov.)
For information about upcoming topics, dates and registration, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Registration is required before each program.
Children and their parents looking for hands-on ways to learn, create, and have fun inspire our GPN volunteers to offer programs that do just that.
This FREE monthly children’s event includes a variety of activities:
- Planting seeds, veggies or ornamentals into pots so children can continue to grow them at home.
- Creating a “nature theme” craft project with materials that are provided.
- 30-40 minute hands-on lesson that focuses on a single topic each month.
Previous lessons have included making a worm farm, putting together a compost bin, learning about the importance of butterflies, and making a feeder to attract pollinators.
