Special Activities:

Outdoors (weather permitting) – 

HELPFUL PLANTS
For thousands of years, humans have used plants for medicine and therapeutic remedies. Explore how we can use some common and exotic plants to make our lives better and easier!

WHERE’S THE WATER?
The surface of the earth is COVERED in water... but how much of that do we actually use? Discover how much water we have access to and how we can help to keep it clean.

GARDEN SCIENCE
Look at different kinds of seeds and see how they differ, then put your planting skills to practice! Plus, a limited number of guests will get to take seeds home to start gardens of their own.

Indoors – 

ITTY BITTY BOTANICALS
Plants are EVERYWHERE! Did you know there are plants you can’t see with the naked eye? Take a look under the microscope and open your eyes to some of Earth’s coolest tiny plants!

POLLINATOR MATCH
Many plants rely on pollinators to help them reproduce. Can you match pollinators to the types of flowers they might prefer?

INNOVATION INCUBATOR OPEN WORKSHOP
Step into I2 to see the amazing maker technology and learn about 3D modeling as we use our 3D printer to make a flower pot!
