Welcome to the PlantMaker Studio...online! While we can't be together in the PlantMaker Studio at the Arboretum, join us to make a plant and nature exploration tool kit!
This spring and summer, we'll be working on projects that you can do where you live with materials you already have on hand. Join Reba each week for a new project that will help you learn a little bit more about the plants that live around you.
