Children's Program

Terrarium Workshop

June 9, 2013 (Sunday) – 2:00 PM–3:30 PM

Back by popular demand! Our second Terrarium Workshop for children will be another chance to come to the Arboretum and create a cool miniature garden to take home.

We'll learn the history of terrariums and use them to learn about the water cycle. Creating terrariums is a fun project that allows children to get creative and make a garden they can observe.

We provide all the materials necessary to make the terrariums. Each child registered will create a terrarium complete with plants and a few fun surprises.

Suggested age: Children ages six and up

Cost: $20 for Arboretum members, $25 for non-members
