Seeds are amazing little packages that move by rolling on the ground, flying through the air, floating in water or "hitching" a ride on passerby’s. We will take a hike to look for seeds in their many forms from acorns to pinecones to walnuts. Using our high-powered microscopes, we will then take a closer look to discover how these amazing seeds can move and grow into new flowers and trees.

This program is designed for ages 8 and up and their adult chaperones and is sponsored by Councilwoman Debi Rose. Meet at the Nevada Avenue entrance to High Rock Park. Registration required.
