Master Gardener Program at Woodlawn Museum
Ellsworth – Woodlawn in collaboration with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension Master Gardener program will present, Natural Fun with Nature on Saturday, July 29 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Children ages 5-12 and parents too are sure to enjoy exploring wildlife at Woodlawn Museum’s gardens and park. Lions, tigers, and bears, oh no! Instead it will be insects, flowers, trees, and so much more!! We’ll put all our senses to work to enjoy the intrigue and wealth nature offers as we move in small groups from garden to forest for hands-on activities on Saturday mornings. Activities will be led by University of Maine Cooperative Extension’s Master Gardener Volunteers and Maine Master Naturalists.
The program is free and open to the first 15 children who sign up. Registrations can be made by visiting Woodlawn’s calendar page at woodlawnmuseum.org. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Registrations are required by visiting woodlawnmuseum.org In case of heaving rain, call 667-8671 the morning of the workshop about cancellation.
