Smart Art (on-going):

- Our Natural World > An artistic exploration of a variety of materials that grow on our native trees around us.
- Sensory & Citrus> You’re invited to plant your own citrus tree to take home and grow with water and TLC.
Music & Movement: On Tu B’Shvat > A song all about the ‘birthday of the trees!’
Sensational Story Time (12 NOON & 3 PM): Tree Spirits > Louise Wannier is coming to read her interactive story to help inspire and connect children to our world in non-obvious ways, while guiding them to connect to their own spirit and feelings.
Grown-up Tip: Encourage your child to hug a tree! They can even thank the tree for the clean air that they get to breathe each day. We need trees for so many reasons; talk with your child about all the ways that we use trees in our daily lives.
