Summer Storytime in the Gardens

Tuesday, July 1: Fantastic Fireflies  It’s that magical time of year when it appears that stars are dancing through the air.  Come join us as we read about fireflies – our little “twinkling stars” on Earth.  Sorry, both sessions are sold out

Wednesday, July 30: Pebbles, Rocks and Sand  Kids love rocks!  They can be sparkly, smooth, colorful and so much more.  Let’s explore the fascinating variety of rocks and stones in our environment and how people and animals use them.   Sorry, both sessions are sold out

Tuesday, August 12: A Shell for a Home  Can you imagine getting around all day with a shell on your back?  Join us as we read about some amazing, hard-shelled animals like snails, turtles and clams.   Sorry, 10:30 sold out; 12:30 still has openings 

Wednesday, Aug. 20: Dragons and Damsels  Join us by the pond as we learn about jewel-winged dragonflies and their dainty cousins, the damselflies.  Sorry, 10:30 sold out; 12:30 still has openings
