Homeschool Series - Signs of Spring
Mar 07, 2013
1:00 - 2:00 p.m.

Signs of Spring:
What does nature do to wake up from the cold, snowy winter months? What signs does it give us that warmer weather and longer days are on the horizon? What plants and animals first start to show signs of activity in the late winter early spring? Participants will search the Arboretum grounds for signs of springtime including early returning bird species, blooming crocuses and melting snow and ice into our rivers and streams.

The winter homeschool series will be a six week series that will meet on Thursdays in January, February and March from 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm. Ages 5-11 are welcome to attend. Parents can stay for the program or drop off their children for the hour. Each class will consist of indoor and outdoor time; parents should plan for their children to spend some time outside in winter weather and should dress appropriately.
