Nature Sleuths (Ages 5-7)

Pam Newitt
Educator and Founder, Nature by the Yard

Autumn is a wonderful time for children to explore the great outdoors, developing their intellectual curiousity while having fun in nature! Join us to take a close look at trees, birds, and other wildlife that call the Morris Arboretum home. Each session will focus on a particular topic of the natural world, delving into how it fits into the Arboretum's web of life. One week we may use binoculars to find migrating birds, while another week we may follow the colorful progress of the leaves' changing fall colors; all within the safe confines of the Arboretum's trails. Then back inside, we will create a take-home project related to our outdoor adventures.

How Does Nature Inspire You? (Ages 6 - 9)

Jennifer Leibert
Museum Educator

In this four-week series, we will look to nature, grand and small, for creative inspiration. We will walk through the gardens of Morris Arboretum to observe from nature and art, and then go inside to draw, print, build, and design! We will use things found in nature and recyclable goods to create puppets that help us understand why recycling is so important to our community and environment. We will explore the Arboretum's artwork, and see how it inspires our own work. We will examine patterns in nature and make stamps, too! Each class will include exciting nature studies and fun art activities taught in a friendly and supportive environment. All supplies are provided. Come dressed for the weather and fun!
