Garden Sprouts:  Snow Giants

Frelinghuysen Arboretum, 353 East Hanover Avenue, Morris Township, NJ 07960

Ages 3 - 5 with an adult. 

When it snows a big white blanket may cover the plants, but what’s happening below the snow that we can’t see? Bundle up and let’s explore. Garden Sprouts will learn how snow can help plants in the wintertime.

Cost: $10 per child with an adult. 

Contact: Preregistration is required. For more information call 973.326.7601.
