Head out to the Sternberg Museum’s Howard Reynolds Nature Trails to explore the incredible world of plants! We will spend time out on the trails finding and identifying trees and other wild plants before collecting some leaves and flowers for activities. Back in the classroom, we will go over how to tell apart different plant structures, from leaves and stems to flowers and roots. Students will also learn about fruits and seeds, why there plants parts come in so many shapes and sizes, and what they do. Did you know that
a spicy pepper is painful for mammals to eat, but not for birds? Birds eat the peppers and spread the seeds, allowing new plants to grow in different places. Pretty cool!

Fees are $60 per member, and $70 per non-member.
