A Summer Reading Celebration

Have you ever wondered what type of tree produces seeds with spikes? Or why leaves change color in the fall? This fun program allows us to get the answers to these questions and many more through the use and investigation of hands-on artifacts! Topics also include wildlife’s role in moving seeds, plant adaptations, and medicinal and edible plants in our area. Recommended for ages 6 and older.
