Get your fill of the science craze!

Join us and dive into topics like water quality, photosynthesis, plant chemistry, animal science, food science and more!
January: The More Plants the Merrier!
Can an apple grow from a pear tree? The answer might surprise you! Come kick off the first Science Saturday of the new year by learning plant propagation techniques! We'll take a trip to the greenhouses right behind the Arboretum and learn how to propagate plants from stems, roots, and even leaves! We will also do some hands-on grafting, and explore the science and art behind it all!
