Let’s Make Like A LEAF and …

Summer’s officially behind us as of September 22 (If you’re not sure of the meaning of that date google “Autumn Equinox Meaning”).  So as we have been looking at the colors starting to change, of course, being life-long learners we start to ask questions.  Some of our questions this time of year;

  • Why do leaves change colors and fall off the trees?
  • What determines the leaf color?
  • How do you tell a poplar leaf from an aspen leaf?
  • What is the difference between a leaf and a leaflet?
  • How can you tell when a tree HAS leaflets?
  • Why don’t PINE trees lose all their needles?

Those questions and any others that might come to your mind between TODAY and Sunday, October 12 will be answered by the Museum’s own Anne Drake.  Anne is just brimming with information and itching to get it out there about FALL and LEAVES and LEAFLETS and so much more.

The program starts PROMPTLY at 2:00 pm and will wrap up with a craft.  The purpose of the craft is to help kids (and adults) identify leaves and make something both will remember for years to come.  There is a $2.00 fee for the craft – and Museum admission (whether member or non) is required.

Please sign up in advance so we know how MANY craft sets we will need to prepare. Call the Museum at 231 932 4526 to make your registration today.
