Create and Connect Crafts
Join our creative team of volunteers in the Tannis M. Richardson Classroom for some hands-on crafting. We’ll be using natural or recycled products to keep this activity as sustainable as possible. Crafts are appropriate for kids and families of all ages and are accessible without admission to the biomes. Space is limited in the classroom. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
Crafts are available on the following dates from 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm while supplies last: Sundays, January 22, February 5, February 19, March 5, and March 19.
