Celebrate Earth Day by restoring native prairie with Powell Gardens. Individuals, families, environmental groups, Girl Scouts, and Cub Scouts are invited to help Powell Gardens manage the native landscapes to better support diverse plant and animal species. Participants will learn about the importance of planting native species in their homes and communities and how the plants will support wildlife. Organizations and Scout groups may create banners to take back to their communities to encourage others to make a difference for their local environments. This workshop will allow families to work and learn together to make a positive impact in honor of Earth Day 2019. Many of the activities satisfy requirements for Cub Scouts’ Grow Something and Into the Wild badges and Girl Scouts’ Gardener and Eco Friend badges. Sign up your family or group before spots are filled! Regular Garden admission applies.
