April 14, 2012 - Listen to the Music of the Gardens
On our exploration of the Gardens, the rustling of leaves, bird songs and flowing water will be music to your ears. We will capture the sounds of the Gardens through creation of musical instruments, followed by ensemble music-making.

May 5, 2012 - Garden Scrapbook
Exploring in the Gardens is fun. This class lets you take the fun home with you. Fill your scrapbooks with natural items collected from the Gardens, along with poems, stories, sketches and photos inspired by our visit to the many unique areas in the Gardens.

June 2, 2012 - Magical Creatures of the Gardens
Bring your imagination and creativity to help us build homes for the fairies and hobbits who visit our Gardens. As we explore, we will collect natural materials to use for building. Take a photo of your creation and make a nature frame to take home with you.
