A hands-on Native Plant Experience

Saturday, May 11th

At the Salmon Center

1pm – 4pm

Kids ages 7-11

Spring has sprung! What’s growing in your backyard? The ferns are unfurling, the flowers are blooming… what a wonderful time to celebrate nature’s gifts! Join us at the Salmon Center to discover the role native plants play in ecosystems and peoples’ lives here in Washington. Through creative outdoor activities, we’ll learn native plant identification basics and discuss their historical and contemporary uses. We’ll also explore the importance of native plants and practice our gratitude! With your new knowledge, you’ll be a bona fide backyard botanist!

A special snack, featuring a local plant, will be provided!
