DISCOVERY THEATER: Science of Spring

Wednesday, April 15, 2020 - 10:15 a.m. to 10:45 a.m.

This program is recommended for children ages 5-10. 

Spring heralds the dawn of the natural “new year” when the earth blossoms with rebirth, regeneration, and growth. Our timeless link to the planet is in the spotlight in an interactive Discovery Theater original that explores the traditional folk wisdom and the modern earth science that explains the greening of the year. From the myth of Persephone’s return to the seeds sprouting in our garden, this delightful look at spring’s bounty of life offers wonderful opportunities for learning and fun.
