Learn about beneficial insects and how you can attract them to your yard. Go on a scavenger hunt for insect-friendly materials like leaves, sticks, and flowers, then build your own bug hotel to take home.

Budding Gardeners is aimed at children in grades 1-6 to discover gardening, conservation, and wildlife through interactive programs, crafts, and outdoor activities.

Light refreshments are provided.

COVID-19 health and safety guidelines will be practiced during this event. Seating and work stations in the Ballroom and Courtyard will be socially distanced, and attendees must wear masks throughout the program.

The program is free, but space is limited. Registration is required, so we know how many supplies to provide.
