Just want to let you know about two great kids programs this winter:

Children grades 3-5 "Plant with Presidents" on Monday February 15

Your children will never think about the “founding fathers” in quite the same way again! Click here to register on line.

“My Home is a Tree” on Saturday March 19 is for kids grades 1-2.

It combines a walk with a craft and a whole lot of natural history with Miss Lily Mehl and is just right for this age group. Click here to register on line.
