April's Spotlight—Flowers

The garden is waking up and flowers are starting to bloom all over the gardens. Join Ms. Elizabeth as she takes a look around the Arboretum gardens and shares the colors and smells of spring flowers!

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

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

Each month we create an activity kit for families to connect with the month's theme. April's Garden Activity Kit features What's Inside A Flower? (And Other Questions About Science & Nature) by Rachel Ignotofsky. This book is easy to read and full of colorful pictures. Each page is packed with illustrations and labels—it's perfect for playing I Spy!

In addition to the book, April's Garden Activity Kit contains a wooden flower press to start your collection of pressed flowers, a pack of marigolds to plant in your garden, and a special creation of pressed flowers and leaves from the JCRA's gardens.

Limited number of kits are available for $20.00. Shipping is available for an additional fee. Visit our online registration e-store to order yours today!
