End Date: 11/13/2021End Time: 12:00 PM

Event Description

We love the vibrant colors of fall, but why do trees put on such a show every year? The secret is in their chemistry!

Grades 3-5 

Work with Academy botanists to discover how trees get ready to hunker down for the cold winter. Try an experiment to unlock the chemistry of the autumn and check out rare specimens from the Academy Botany Collection. Find out why some leaves change color, and discover what other tricks trees might just be hiding deep in their xylem and phloem.

Space is limited; register here by Thursday, November 11 at 5 p.m.

$35 child/$25 member child per workshop; additional children per family can be registered for $10 each
