  • Friday, March 5, 2021 – 10:30 am11:00 am

Coming to you live from the Arboretum gardens! It's a special delivery of gardening tidbits each month! Join us the first Friday of the month to hear about the month's topic and get a preview of other family programs and activities that are coming up this month.

March's Spotlight—Weather

How does the weather affect your garden? We are going to explore the weather during our March children's programs to find out how! Rain gauges, weather vanes, and all sorts of tools can help you measure things like rainfall, wind, and humidity. Join Ms. Elizabeth as she takes a look around the Arboretum gardens to see the impact of the weather on the plants!

Please join us on the JC Raulston Arboretum Facebook page to watch the program live.

Bring March's Theme Alive at Home with a Garden Activity Kit

Take your study of weather even further! In this beautifully illustrated book, you will explore 4 different types of weather: sun, rain, ice and snow, and extreme weather.

March's Garden Activity Kit contains a hardback copy of Look at the Weather by Britta Teckentrup, a cloud identification craft, weather journal, a rain lily plant and a special JCRA surprise. Limited number of kits are available for $20.00. Shipping is available this month for an additional fee.

Online event via Facebook.
