Dragonflies are fascinating creatures as they dip and swoop though the air. This session will cover the unique life cycle of the dragonfly and its important role in our ecosystem. Participants will get to make a sparkling dragonfly craft, and read a story that highlights the important mythology that the dragonfly holds for the Zuni people of the American Southwest.
Cost: $6 for one child (with one adult) per class. Plus admission for general public.
Watch wildlife in action during this fall favorite. Guests will have an opportunity to see our animals sniff, stomp, pounce and play with tempting treats designed to exercise their minds and bodies and enhance their overall well-being.
In the world of naturalists there are birders and there are folks who look for dragonflies, amphibian species, snakes and larger mammals—but the plant nut reigns supreme! Or, at least that is what we at the Botanical Garden would like to think. Plant identification is a useful skill that can help you find and identify other species in nature. Learn all about those little plant parts that will help you to identify plants from floras and field guides as well as prominent plant families in the South Carolina landscape.
