October: Plants and Migration
Did you know that plant growth can determine when an animal will migrate? In this class, students will learn the role of plants in migration. Many animals and insects migrate, and a great example is the monarch butterfly. Through hands-on activities, we will learn about the process of tagging monarchs to track their annual migration.

December: Trees: Deciduous and Evergreen
Winter is a wonderful time to explore the Garden from many unique perspectives…such as looking at the vital and amazing world of trees! Why do some trees have no leaves while others are green all year long? Why are leaves shaped differently? Let’s explore these wintry trees together! Each student will make an evergreen sensory bundle to take home.
