Starry Night Votives

Adults and Tween/Teens entering grades 6 through 12 are invited to create an illuminating set of unique jars using a technique called “hydro-dipping.” A swirling effect is achieved when participants carefully pour colored nail polish into containers of water and dip their jars into the mixture. Once dry, fairy lights are added and arranged to help the cluster of votives glow! Materials will be provided. Registration is required.

Green Galactic Guardians: An Eco-Expedition with Wall-E

Young participants and their caregiver(s) are invited to enjoy an out-of-this-world presentation by the Ecology Action Center.

“Green Galactic Guardians: An Eco-Expedition with Wall-E” is designed for young participants (entering Kindergarten through grade 5) and their caregiver(s). Children under the age of 8 must be accompanied and directly supervised at all times by a parent or other responsible caregiver (age 14 or over). Registration is required.
