Evergreens: Never Bare, and Always Awesome

Friday, December 23rd 10:00 am – 2:00 pm


Evergreen trees play a special role this time of year. As the temperature drops and daylight gets shorter, these coldweather stalwarts provide us with an incredible example of life's persistence in the harshest environments. Children will learn how these trees stay green when the world turns white, as we explore the grounds to find the evergreen species that live at the Nature Center.
