Family Garden Close-Up: Roots

Compost
Saturday, July 26, 11am - 1pm
Made up of organic matter, or things that used to be living, such as plants, animals and their waste, although it may be smelly, there’s nothing dirty about compost at all. Compost gives plants and soil the nutrients they need. Join us in looking at a compost pile to discuss what “all the stink” is about.
FGC is especially great for young learners. Free with regular Conservatory admission: $5/adult, $3/child age 3-17; children age 2 and under free.

Birds
Saturday, August 23, 11am - 1pm
The Eastern Bluebird, Indigo Bunting and Northern Cardinal are a few of Indiana’s most common backyard birds. They’re fairly easily identified by their features – feathers, wings, and beak – and that they typically are able to fly. Let’s see how many of these warm-blooded, egg-laying vertebrates we can find, then we’ll make something special for them for your own backyard. FGC is especially great for young learners. Free with regular Conservatory admission: $5/adult, $3/child age 3-17; children age 2 and under free.
