Home School Days: Oh, The Places You’ll Grow

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

Ages 6 – 12.

Plants need, water, light, air and food to grow but there are plants that can survive without ever putting roots in the ground.  Scouts will learn about epiphytes or air plants and “plant” one in the perfect kind of planter they will create.  

Cost: $ 10 per child. 

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