The season for ankle-deep grey slush doesn’t have to prevent your children from doing some nature-based learning. The Phipps Conservatory is offering a variety of Science Education programming to teach kids about conservation and ecology in an immersive environment.
Tonight, Phipps hold one of its monthly “Evening Ed-Ventures,” 6:30-9:30 p.m. The workshop teaches kids aged 6-9 elements of science and health by exploring the Conservatory and creating healthy snacks, at $25 for non-members or $20 for members per session. While kids attend the program, parents can dine on the tasty fare at Café Phipps for $29.99 for two, including a glass of wine and assorted small plates.
A four-week “Little Sprouts Camp” runs 10:30 a.m.-noon on Mon., Jan. 7. Every Monday this month in “My First Garden,” kids ages 2 and 3 can learn the basics of gardening through songs, stories and a pot plant to take home. It's $48 for members, $60 for non-members and an adult must accompany campers.
The “Celebrate! Series” of holiday workshops feature a New Year’s session on Sat., Jan. 12. themed around renewal. Children can craft T-shirts, planters and healthy snacks from recycled materials. Sessions are 10 a.m.-noon for ages 4-5 and 1-3 p.m. for ages 6-9. $12 for members or $15 for non-members.
