Learning Together: Magnificent Mossariums

Join this fully online workshop and create your very own mossariums as a family. This class is designed for adults and children (ages 5 to 10) to learn together.

Get kids outdoors and engaged in the wonders of nature—and all they could learn about themselves, their passions, and more—by exploring our Gardens. 

Want to bring our exciting and creative learning opportunities home? Hoping to diversify your homeschooling with new activities? Keep your kids learning—and have hours of fun—with our downloadable activities. For even more interactive learning, bring home or order a Discovery Box that gives kids all the tools they need to explore their own backyard and engage in fun activities.
