It isn’t all tricks, of course – you’ll learn all about recycling, then use biodegradable materials to decorate your own ghost and watch it disappear. Make ecoliteracy a family affair as you work together to build sustainable solutions.
Sunday, November 14: Autumn Leaves You and your little one will fall for this hands-on exploration of trees and leaves. Young naturalists will get the chance to identify what trees need for survival and then conduct experiments on leaf capillary action to create take-home art projects. Join us for science so fun, it’s almost unbeleafable.
